We are thrilled to present a wonderfully exciting contemporary quartet, The Hermes Experiment. Made up of harp, clarinet, voice and double bass the ensemble regularly commissions new works as well as creating their own innovative arrangements and venturing into live free improvisation.

This specially curated performance takes a special look at emerging music and living composers and will be presented by composer and music education animateur Helen Woods. This interactive, fun and educational concert will focus on introducing keystage 2 pupils to a new kind of sound world. It’s going to be a visual and aural treat not to be missed!
