The University of Salford is delighted to launch Create Salford 2014 - a public arts festival showcasing the imaginative, creative work from students in our School of Arts and Media.
As well as a student work, you can look forward to immersive performances and installations, including specially-commissioned pieces produced with our closest friends and industry partners.
The Salford Choral Society will begin the concert with a special performance of Aaron Copland’s ‘Old American Songs Set One’ which features the full choir, soloists and the specially formed Festival Orchestra, conducted by Matthew Hamilton.To finish the first half of the event The University of Salford Big Band, directed by Tim France, will deliver an exciting short programme, featuring the music of the legendary musician and composer, Oliver Nelson.
The second half and climax to this special event, features the UK premiere performance of ‘Deeper than All Roses’, composed by Stephen Davismoon. The innovative composition brings together orchestral, choral, vocal soloist and rock group forces within a single composition. The rock group are recent graduates from the University of Salford and the vocal soloists are a mix of students from Ohio Northern University and Univeristy of Salford students.
The Festival Orchestra for tonight’s performance, is a composite of UoS, ONU and Royal Northern College of Music students, alumni and guests and we are sincerely grateful to Martin Maris and the BBC Philharmonic for their incredible support in the fixing of a complete string section for our event.
'Deeper than all roses' is a cycle of 4 songs which sets four delicate poems on the themes of love and time by the wonderful American poet, E.E Cummings.
Door open at 6.15pm, concert starts at 7pm.
The full festival programme will be released shortly, but for now, you can find out more about the festival by following the hashtag #CreateSalford on twitter and checking out news updates on the official website: www.salford.ac.uk/create
