In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Bangor Music Festival, organisers have decided to create a programme of events that captures the festival’s main principles- the new, innovation and the experimental. These will be intertwined with the timely concept of health and wellbeing to produce an unforgettable 2-days of experiences for visitors on Friday 14th and Saturday 15th February.
In keeping with this year’s theme, the festival will be showcasing the innovative ensembles UPROAR and Electroacoustic WALES and the talented pianist Siwan Rhys, before closing with an experimental production by Exploration in Sound. These artists will all be performing in the majestic Pontio building.
New music is further celebrated with the commissioning of Juan Pablo Barrios and Tom Sissons and new pieces by Jordan Hirst, Ashley John Long, Niamh O’Donnell, David Roche, Joss Smith and Jerry Zhuo as part of the CoDI SOUNDS project. The festival will also feature brand new pieces created by composition students at Bangor University.
