All sounds sent to us up until midday on September 22nd will be given to Luke Sanger and Nik Colk Void to be used in their improvised performances at YARMONICS ELECTRONIC to close the festival.

After the festival a selection of sounds will be edited into packages that can be freely downloaded and used for remix and composition purposes.

Chapel Concerts and Assembly House Sunday 2 September, 2018

Chapel Concerts is a series of concerts programmed by Roger Rowe in a former Swedeborgian chapel at 64 Park Lane, Norwich NR2 3EF. Roger also programmes a series of concert at the Assembly House, Theatre Street, Norwich – see below.

Sunday 2 September 2018
The Chapel, 64 Park Lane, NR2 3EF


Ashley Fripp, who gave an excellent recital here two years ago, returns to give another stimulating recital of works by Bach, Chopin, Schumann  & Prokoviev’s  2nd Sonata – rarely played now, but rapturously received when it was first performed by the composer himself, in St Petersburg on February 5 1914, not long before the outbreak of war, and well worth a hearing.

Also, don’t forget the Carducci Quartet’s lunchtime concert on Thursday 13th September at the Assembly House – details below, Roger
