Oxford University Wind Orchestra and Cambridge University Wind Orchestra come together on 24th November for their annual varsity concert! Tickets can be found here: https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/ouwo
Oxford’s programme is inspired by Scotland’s ‘Year of Young People 2018′ with their Glaswegian conductor, Chris O’Leary, presenting an array of music inspired by Scotland and works by contemporary Scottish composers. This concert marks Chris’ second term conducting OUWO, and welcomes our Assistant Conductor for this term, Emily Hazrati. CUWO (Cambridge University Wind Orchestra) under conductor Edward Liebrecht perform the works of two titans of Russian music: Stravinsky’s Symphonies of Wind Instruments and Shostakovich’s Jazz Suite No. 2. There is also American-inspired music on show in the form of Nigel Hess’ East Coast Pictures following CUWO’s New York and Montreal tour over the summer.
