Late Music York - March concerts

UYMP's friends Late Music York have three exciting concerts coming up this first weekend in March, at the Unitarian Chapel, St Saviourgate, York.  Hilary Suckling’s lunchtime piano recital (1pm, Saturday 2nd March) will include works by York-based composers Martin Suckling and James Else. The Saturday 2nd March evening concert (7.30pm), on the theme of ‘Passion’, to be given by the Elysian Singers, will include the world premiere of UYMP composer David Lancaster’s Crucifixion, a commission from Late Music.  The Sunday 3rd March lunchtime concert at 1pm, by the Clerkes of All Saints, spans a journey from Monteverdi to Saint-Saens, through Macmillan’s Scotland and Ēriks Ešenvalds’ Latvia, to Estonia with Pärt Uusberg.

‘We’re looking forward to 3 amazing concerts in March. First up, Hilary Suckling (Sat 2nd Mar @ 1pm) will be exploring dreamlike textures in British, French and American piano music. At our evening concert (Sat 2nd Mar @ 7:30pm) the Elysian Singers will be featuring a world premiere by pioneering composer Gavin Bryars, including a free glass of wine/juice at our 6:45pm pre-concert talk. Finally, the choir of the Clerkes of All Saints are charting a European journey from Monteverdi to Saint-Saens (Sun 3rd Mar @ 1pm). We hope to see you there!’
