Birmingham Contemporary Music Group presents
Canal Serenade on Narrow Boats
BCMG asked three composers, one from Britain, one from Cyprus and another from the Czech Republic, to write music celebrating the amazing story of Birmingham’s canals. Where once goods were exchanged, at Weekender we hear musical ideas traded as music written by Richard Baker, Ondřej Adámek and Yannis Kyriakides plays out across Birmingham’s watery arteries.
Canal Serenade will be performed on three separate narrowboats, uniting at the meeting point of three canals, with Ex Cathedra lending its voices from the towpath.
Supported by Canal and Rivers Trust
Children aged 8-11 years and 12-18 years are invited to join BCMG for an afternoon of musical workshops on Sunday 24 September.
Tickets £5, details at www.bcmg.org.uk
