An Evening with Evelyn Glennie

As one of the most intriguing and innovative musicians around Glennie is constantly redefining perceptions of percussion. She performs a diverse recital including Ilijas by Nebojsa Zivkovic, Clapping Music by Steve Reich, Rhythmic Caprice by Leigh Howard Stevens and her own work. This will be followed by an insightful TED-style talk about her unique connection to music, challenging the listener to ask where music comes from.

The event will be preceded by a The Jasmine Flower, a new 10-minute work by Liverpool’s Pagoda Chinese Youth Orchestra, performed with the Merseyside Signing Choir and Shanghai Deaf School.
