Vale of Glamorgan at Home

Vale of Glamorgan Festival
This weekend, the Vale of Glamorgan Festival is going on-line, with a series of events featuring composers who were to be part of the 2020 festival. The first event, last night, was a mix of discussion and performance with composer and pianist Huw Watkins, composer and festival director John Metcalf, composer and writer Steph Power and harpist Anne Denholm [available on YouTube].

On Monday 18 May 2020, Steph Power will be joined in discussion by composers Mark Bowden, Mared Emlyn, Maja Palser, David John Roche, and director of Ty Cerdd, Deborah Keyser. And there will be performances of each of the composers' music, by David Adams, violin, Robin Green, piano, Anne Denholm, harp, David John Roche, guitar, Matthew Jones, violin, Annabel Thwaite, piano.

Then on Friday 22 May 2020, the festival goes international as John Metcalf and Steph Power will be joined in conversation with Pulitzer Prize-winning composer John Luther Adams to discuss his music and creative process. Musicians George Barton (percussion) and Siwan Rhys (piano), and Anne Denholm (harp) perform music by John Luther Adams and also join in the conversation.
