Bangor Music Festival 2018

Theme: SPACE

Saturday 3 February
Throughout the Day

The Bangor Music Festival is a unique opportunity to explore space, planets, stars and galaxies through the medium of music and science that will be an inspiration to the whole family. The Music of the Spheres will resound during Zubin Kanga’s concert, that also includes festival commissions by Maja Palser and Claire Victoria Roberts together with two iconic pieces by George Crumb and Patrick Nunn.

Live electronic sounds led by Scott Wilson will take centre stage at the Electroacoustic Wales and Birmingham Ensemble for Electroacoustic Research concert at Theatr Bryn Terfel, with additional acousmatic music by Jo Thomas and a festival commission by Ed Wright.

Throughout the day the other events are placed within various locations within Pontio that presents us with an exploration of the Planetarium, music for young children with Marie-Claire Howorth and creating electronic sounds from the BEER website. Audiences will be captivated by the performance of student compositions performed by the Bangor New Music Ensemble and local instrumentalists are encouraged to improvise with the Bangor University Fusion Ensemble. Other activities include a piano masterclass and stargazing opportunities on the Friday.
