On Sunday 8th March 2020, the East Midlands CoMA Ensemble was joined by all-comers for a Come and Play Day, trying out fun and approachable contemporary music.
Our venue was Nottingham Trent University, in their brand new Music Centre.
Lead by Joe Davies (our new Musical Director), we rehearsed the following pieces, all by female composers on International Women’s Day:
Judith Weir – Symphony of Spitalfields
Naomi Pinnock – Four Humours
Joanna Baillie – Hildegardestrasse
Kate Whitley – Three Movements
Sarah Hennies – Growing Block
The day finished with an informal performance of the pieces we’d worked on, to a small but appreciative audience.
