THIS EVENT TOOK PLACE IN 2010 Kieran O’Riordan, conductors Patrick Burnett Adam Mooney Tim Watkins Martin ELLERBY Paris Sketches Nigel HESS Global Variations Christopher MARSHALL Aue! Claude-Michel SCHONBERG Selection from ‘Miss Saigon’ SOUSA Semper Fidelis Join the woodwind, brass and percussion players of the University Union’s Blow Society in a fascinating journey through the musical landscapes of the world. Martin Ellerby’s Paris Sketches is a work of great beauty and power, inspired by four districts (and several composers) of the French capital. In Christopher Marshall’s extraordinary Aue!, the sounds of Samoan village life are vividly captured: the songs, hymns, and dances all filtered and transformed by the mists of the rain forest. East meets West in Claude-Michel Schonberg’s celebrated music from Miss Saigon. To round things off, Nigel Hess’s Global Variations is a whistle-stop journey around the globe, visiting France, Spain, South Africa, Egypt, Russia, India, China, Australia and America in a little over eight minutes! The concert finishes at approximately 9.30pm
