Event description

Description

The Open University Choir gives the world première of A different kind of urban, the piece it has commissioned for Milton Keynes’ 50th birthday. Milton Keynes author Judi Moore’s lyrics celebrate the new town, its history, geography, diversity and culture. Her text is set to music by composer and Open University Associate Lecturer in Music, Liz Lane, whose Antiphonary for brass and percussion is also included in the concert.

In this pre-concert discussion lyricist Judi Moore, composer Liz Lane and conductor Bill Strang discuss with OU Choir member Stephen Potter, how A different kind of urban was conceived, researched and developed.

Both events have been included in the programme which the Open University’s Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences is organising for the Being Human festival, a national venture for showcasing research in the humanities.

Admission to the pre-concert discussion is free but by ticket only. The discussion takes place 11.30 am-12.10pm.
Admission to the concert at 1pm is also free but requires a separate ticket (see separate Eventbrite ticketing link). Tickets should be printed out and shown at the door to gain entry to the event.
