Exeter Phoenix

Next concert 10th May - Marenje Ensemble

There are a couple of important changes for our next concert on 10th May: 
it will take place at the Phoenix 
and will start at 4:00 pm. 
Tickets are available from 
Exeter Visitor Information, 
Dix's Field, Exeter. 

The concert will feature the Exeter Contemporary Sounds' string quartet of Andrew Gillett (viola), Julie Hill (violin), Jane Pirie (cello) and Emma Welton (violin).

The string quartet have been working on a research project with Bath Spa University's Amanda Bayley. They have been collaborating with Mbira player Chartwell Dutiro and dancer Denise Rowe, exploring music from their individual heritages and attempting to meet in the middle!

'Zimbabwean Mbira and European String Quartet, icons within their cultures, provoke and explore each other with dance delving deep into their rhythms, moods and creative drive.'

Here are some pictures from a recent rehearsal:

The Earworms' concert will consist of some of the pieces that have evolved from the project. There will be a full concert of all the pieces, including a new piece by Bristol based composer Daniel Linker, later in the evening (tickets available from the Phoenix).
