A FCM first introduction to John Cage impromptu found instruments performance piece, "Living room music" ("Modern Music—well 1940's actually"). Steve Reich's (how do they possibly coordinate its intricacies) "Music for Pieces of Wood". Contemplative, iconic "Mad Rush"—Philip Glass.

Delicate work and vibrant colours in Kathryn Roberts' glasswork.


February 2018—Ensemble Eos Cymru

We started off the year with a concert in collaboration with Ensemble Eos Cymru who provided a fabulous evening's entertainment; and were very fortunate to have composer Christopher R. Weeks conduct his work, which you can listen to here.
