A ‘double’ concert of new discoveries and old favourites, inspired by the theme of the sea and the earth. Join us on a journey from Mendelssohn’s much-loved Hebrides Overture to the evocative Porthor (Singing Sands) by young Welsh composer Mared Emlyn, and from John Williams’s exciting score for Jurassic Park to Hirotaka Izumi’s samba-fusion-inspired Takarajima (Treasure Island). An eclectic evening of uplifting music for everyone!
