The 2009 Sonorities Festival of Contemporary Music takes place in SARC, the Harty Room and the Whitla Hall, at Queen's Unversity Belfast.
In 2009 we are spreading the activities of the Festival across two periods (May and late November 2009). Both parts of the Festival celebrate the work of Dutch composers and performers. The May programme includes a focus on music by Louis Andriessen, played by the Ulster Orchestra, and also features the Netherlands-based groups POW Ensemble and Trio Scorditura.
We are also delighted to present two locally-based ensembles who will be making their first public appearances in Northern Ireland, the vocal group Bird on a Wire and the piano and saxophone duo Move.
