Thursday Lunchtimes: Cassandra Miller In Focus
Thursday 19 October 2023, 1.15pm
RNCM Concert Hall
Each year our In Focus series invites trailblazing composers to the RNCM. Behind the scenes they work closely with our staff and students, culminating in a compelling day of performances. This Autumn we’re delighted to welcome Dr Cassandra Miller.
Highlighting her creative ingenuity, O Zomer! (O summer! in English) takes its name from the last line of a poem by Dutch writer Toon Tellegen. A soft, intriguing opening makes way for a boisterous finish, following the emotional trajectory of Tellegen’s poem.
A new student work then takes centre stage before the afternoon finishes with Cassandra’s Bel Canto – a musical portrait of Maria Callas.
