My Music: Your Music - New English Visionaries

Sat 26 Jan 2013 16.00 - 17.00

Royal Festival Hall Foyer Space, Southbank Centre, London, SE1 8XX

Event Price: Free Admission

Join us for the premiere of a new film installation, My Music: Your Music, which brings together a range of young musicians voicing their thoughts and visions of music in the future. Celebrating the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Bicentenary and linked to the LPO’s performance of Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius, this series of events (see below) draws inspiration from the pioneering spirit and drive of Edwardian Culture in England and how it shaped artistic thought through the Twentieth Century and beyond. These events are a part of the Southbank Centre’s The Rest Is Noise Festival.
