The music series commences with a concert featuring MPO musicians Jenny Melville, Daniele Galletto and Giacomo Cello and Daniel Cauchi.

Dovetail are six contrasting yet musically consistent short pieces featuring percussion instruments. Each movement of the Prisoner, inspired by McGarry’s poem, explores a different stanza, using pre-recorded voice narration as a starting point for the musical material.

McDowall’s Century Dances stretch a time-line from the 18th Century to the present day, each different in character and mood.
