Kettle’s Yard Music Associate Deborah Carnwath introduces the New Music 2021-22 season at Kettle’s Yard.
We are delighted to announce our full New Music concert series for the 2021-22 season, bringing to Kettle’s Yard an exciting line-up of performers at the cutting edge of music. These include the long-awaited Bastard Assignments and Kathryn Williams, due to open the series on 2 December 2021 – prepare to be ‘shocked and amazed’. They’ll be followed by the enthralling soprano Juliet Fraser on 9 December. In the new year, piano duo Yshani Perinpanayagam and Katherine Tinker will stretch our understanding of piano performance on 20 January, while 17 February brings one of the enduring ensembles of the New Music scene, Psappha, celebrating its 30th anniversary. The series finishes with a flourish on 28 April with a multimedia extravaganza at the hands of pianist Zubin Kanga. Challenge your limits and join us!
New Music Curator Tom McKinney says:
“Even after such a barren period for live music, I’ve been amazed that all the musicians coming to Kettle’s Yard are bouncing back to musical life with even more energy and imaginative ideas than before. The programmes they’ll be performing are astonishing in their range of styles and forms of presentation.”
Concerts are performed in the intimate setting of the Kettle’s Yard House.
