The Metamorphosis concert is a fascinating exploration of how music is composed and developed.
Conceived by Maestro Charles Cozens, conductor and artistic director of the BNMO, this is a rare opportunity to hear him as a pianist with his trio consisting of bassist Alberto Munarriz and percussionist Richard Moore.
In addition, there will be two guest artists, oboist Colin Maier and vocalist Beverly Gail Ritchie.
Audience members will be delighted by the colourful array of improvisation, interpretation and repertoire. This concert is free. We hope to see you there…
