Successful Residency from the Marian Consort

Successful Residency from the Marian Consort

The 11-12 November found one of the country's leading young vocal ensembles come to the Department of Music to give a concert and workshop as part of a two-day residency.

The Marian Consort and conductor Rory McCleery gave a memorable concert which included works by Howard Skempton, James MacMillan and a new work by department composer Dr Phillip Cooke. This was then followed by a fantastic workshop for PhD composers in which the group explored and rehearsed new works by Calum Carswell, Henrik Dahlgren, Paul Gray, Eleanor Haward and Ben Ponniah. The workshop was attended by many from the musical community and proved to be a wonderful occasion to welcome many of the graduate students back to campus for the first time in many months. Phillip Cooke reflected on the residency, 'this was such an important event for all composers in the Department of Music and after nearly two years of musical inactivity it has been so exciting to have new choral music being performed by such amazing singers.' The department hopes to host more events such as this in the coming months.
