University Wind Orchestra Odysseys

Kieran O’Riordan Conductors Sarah Nussbaum Lucy Pankhurst Ticket 250654 Elizabeth Charlesworth Song for the Open Road Nigel Hess Thames Journey Philip Sparkes Atlantic Odyssey Journeys both physical and spiritual are the inspiration for this exciting programme. Lucy Pankhurst won a British Composer's Award in 2011. Her Ticket 250654 commemorates the Titanic sinking by celebrating the courage of the musicians who played to calm the passengers as the disaster unfolded. Recent Nottingham graduate Elizabeth Charlesworth's tone poem takes its inspiration from Walt Whitman's ’Song of the Open Road’. Nigel Hess's Thames Journey is a wonderful musical description of the river's journey from source to sea, which leads neatly to Philip Sparke's Atlantic Odyssey. In this two-movement composition, Philip Sparke describes the elation and terror experienced during a trans-Atlantic yacht crossing. The concert finishes at approximately 9.30pm
