Julian Joseph, who wowed audiences on his last visit to Liverpool, returns as composer to introduce the world premiere of his Othello 21 for wind ensemble. Barber’s Summer Music was commissioned in 1956 for the principal wind players of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, and in it you can hear influences from Gershwin and Stravinsky. Jim Parker’s Mississippi Five is an inventive 1920s-style suite, featuring tributes to the likes of King Oliver and Bessie Smith.
Please note the capacity is very limited (c. 240 seats total) and seating will be done on a socially distanced (2 metre) basis. To book single tickets please call the Box Office on 0151 709 3789.
