WordPlay: NOFA Summer Concert 2018

  • University of Leeds, The Great Hall University Road Leeds, LS2 9JS (map)

National Orchestra for All with special guests Benjamin Baker, Tyrone Lewis and Rap Club

The National Orchestra for All – a unique national youth orchestra made up of young musicians aged 11-18 nominated each year for their dedication and commitment to music – invites you to a spectacular concert to launch the new WordPlay season. During the season we’ll explore how music can be inspired or influenced by both the written word and the spoken word. Join us in Leeds for a concert of new and well-loved music, from Vaughan Williams’ The Lark Ascending and a selection of Opera Choruses, to the première of a new work for orchestra and spoken word inspired by Benjamin Britten’s Night Mail, and new arrangements of music inspired by the tonal languages of Africa.
