CoMA Sussex and CoMA South Ensembles converge at the University of Chichester for a weekend of riotous music-making in the company of the Riot Ensemble. Alongside solo performances by percussionist Joby Burgess, as well as by the ensembles themselves, the participants will combine in the UK premiere of US composer Drew Baker’s ‘Nox’. There will be lectures and workshops, including a keynote from composer/ conductor Aaron Holloway-Nahum alongside presentations from staff and students at the largest university music department in the UK. Organisations associated with West Sussex Music will ensure a distinctive educational slant to this festival of new music on the south coast.
