Daniel Pioro & Erland Cooper

Featuring Clare O’Connell and Studio Collective

This is a past event which has now ended.

Continuing a rewarding collaborative period, Daniel Pioro and Erland Cooper perform live together for the first time. Re-imagining a selection of Cooper’s Orkney repertoire with cellist Clare O’Connell and Studio Collective, a specially selected group of string players from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, they will perform a tone-poem-programme of melody, clouds of sound, and ambient drone.

Cooper’s works, known for their nostalgic meanderings and sense of place, will be stripped back to their essence, then re-awakened into something improvised and ancient. From Neolithic myth to a natural northerly drift, this will be an evening of musical storytelling, sonic experiment, and friendship.

Festival Futures – Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May festival and our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

This year we launch a giving campaign, Festival Futures, to help ensure we continue this work for future generations.

2022’s campaign focuses on ‘Tomorrow’s World’ – the participants, audiences and artists of the future. We aim to raise £20,000 towards our Take Part: Schools programme and towards a range of programming at 2022’s Festival that provides participation and showcase opportunities for young people and early-career artists.  We believe that participation in the arts can increase confidence, creativity and academic results and that by creating performance and commissioning opportunities for the next generation of artists, we are ensuring the future of Norfolk & Norwich Festival. We need your support.
