It’s a tradition at Goldsmiths that all students in the Department begin the academic year with a week of intensive performance based activities that culminate in live shows.
Join us from 6pm in the welcome marquee on the back field for this evening mini-festival featuring students on the BMus Music and BMus Popular Music programmes.
The festival will run across two stages, starting at 6pm with The Goldsmiths Sinfonia conducted by Chris George will perform music by Bartok, Sigur Ros, Mendelssohn and Mel Bonis. The Choir, directed by Jess Baker, will perform a selection of unaccompanied choral works by Helen Chadwick and Ysaye Maria Barnwell amongst others.
We then head to the pop festival stage to hear works created and devised by 2nd year BMus Popular Students before returning to the BMus Music stage with The Jazz Ensemble (directed by Paul Bartholomew) and the Goldsmiths Keyboard Collective (directed by Andrew Zolinsky). The festival will end with brand new works performed by 1st year BMus Popular Music students.
3rd year BMus Popular music student performances involve installations and multimedia works created in our state-of-the-art recording studio, with live events at 310 NXRD during the week, working with John Harries and Mikko Gordon.
This event is free and open to all - bring your own drinks and snacks and listen to an evening of creative works from the music department.
