Superlocrian is fast emerging as one of the UK’s premier crossover chamber ensembles. Performing “innovative new arrangements and compositions” (Katie Derham, BBC Radio 3 ‘In Tune’) in a variety of genres, this exciting wind sextet led by composer and trumpeter Sam Massey assembles top orchestral and session players to blend the sound of woodwind and brass in a fresh new format. This year marks the 70th anniversary of the birth of Karen Carpenter, who sadly died in 1983. Superlocrian are spending this year paying tribute to the music of The Carpenters with a suite of brand new arrangements of their greatest hits, along with some of their lesser-known work.
Alongside this, expect an entertaining mixed programme from Bach to Bond themes via Piazzolla and more!
