We are delighted to announce that our New Music concert series is returning this year.

Kate Whitley returns as our New Music Programmer and describes the series as full of “surprises and discoveries, with three completely new pieces as well as lots of things you may never have heard before.” Her own links with Kettle’s Yard go back to when she was a student in Cambridge and played in our student lunchtime concerts.

The programme opens with the Ligeti String Quartet. On 12 March they will perform a new commission by Whitley herself, inspired by the Actions. The image of the world can be different exhibition.

One of the highlights of the series will be our 22 March concert with the Aurora Percussion Duo who will open the event with a junk percussion performance with students from Impington Village College in Cambridge.

In April, The Multi-Story Orchestra will play a recent commission by Lithuanian composer Ruta Vitkauskaite. This ensemble has been celebrated as one of the most exciting to emerge in recent years.

This Summer, join us to hear a new piece by Royal Philharmonic Society award-winner Samantha Fernando about motherhood, composed in response to the birth of her first-born child.

On 28 June, two pianists will perform George Crumb‘s Celestial Mechanics, inspired by “cosmic choreography”.  Alongside this will be a new piece by Shiori Usui who has been commissioned to respond to the Antony Gormley exhibition, opening at Kettle’s Yard in May 2018.

Tickets for all New Music concerts are £10 (£6 students)
