York Music Event
September 25, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
York for Europe has organised a musical event in celebration of our links with our twin cities of Muenster and Dijon. The event is part of the nationwide Festival of Europe. Historically, artistic and creative links between European countries have been important for cultural and economic development across the continent.
We asked our twin cities to invite local groups to record some music of their choice and then gifted it to the other cities as a video present. Both Dijon and Munster have contributed. In York, five local musical groups enthusiastically took part. We hoped the result would be an interesting mix of musical types and so it has turned out. We are now making a video compilation of all the musical ‘presents’ produced by each of the three cities.
From the 15 pieces of music we have gifted each other, there is something for everyone – choral groups, a big band, a jazz quartet, a ukelele band and music school productions who between them are covering an intriguing mixture of small and large ensembles playing a variety of classical and contemporary music.
In York, you’ll be able to hear the music in St Helen’s Square on Sunday 25th September between 14.00 and 16.00. Some of the local music groups who contributed will be playing live.
Come for as much time as you would like from 14.00 onwards. We expect to finish at 16.00 latest. We look forward to seeing you for an enjoyable celebration of our European links. Special thanks to our twin cities for joining in.
