The Mythical Magic of John Mackey



Wednesday 30 October 1.15pm

Royal Welsh College Wind Orchestra

Pre-performance talk at 12.30pm by RWCMD students 

“I am often accused of writing music that is purely visceral” says the young American composer John Mackey. “That’s my personality – I like loud and fast!” So hold onto your hats as we take two fantastic journeys: the thrilling, Dionysiac frenzy of his brilliant Trombone Concerto, and the epic adventure of Wine-Dark Sea - nothing less than a retelling of the Odyssey in riotously entertaining music.

Tickets: £8 on the day, £6 in advance

Venue: Dora Stoutzker Hall
