Bangor Music Festival

Looking ahead to Women’s Day on the 8th of March, this concert of music by Welsh women composers will showcase some of our finest orchestral music in recent years, from the heroine’s anguish in Rhian Samuel’s Clytemnestra for soprano and orchestra and based on the Greek Tragedy Agamemnon, to Hilary Tann’s ‘deepest respect’ to the victims of Tiananmen Square in The Open Field. Also included in the concert are premieres of three new pieces by the most gifted of the younger generation.
