Giacomo Susani, Concerto for Guitar and Small Orchestra
27 March -19:00 - 22:00
In a very special concert we remember the contribution that Professor Peter McOwan made to public engagement to QMUL. Members of the London Chamber Orchestra unite with QMUL Music Scholars, many of them Barts & The London medical students, to perform a programme of specially selected works including Charles Ives’ Unanswered Question, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies’ Farewell to Stromness, Beethoven’s ebullient eighth symphony and Giacomo Susani’s own evocative and enchanting Guitar Concerto. The evening begins with Professor Alistair Owens presenting a historical perspective of public engagement through the arts in the early days of the People’s Palace.
Concert in association with Barts Heritage, City Music Foundation, Centre for Public Engagement
