Featuring special guest Momentum artist as part of the Momentum: Our Future, Now initiative - https://www.momentum-now.com

Music in the Round’s Singer-in-Residence, Roderick Williams, is without a doubt one of the greatest performers of English song. In this concert, Roderick and Christopher will carry us through the wonderful Wessex world of Thomas Hardy’s poems set to music. From cider-drenched outbursts of joy in spring, to the falling yellow leaves of autumn, expect to be completely absorbed by an idyllic landscape with these outstanding musicians.

Roderick and Christopher will also be joined by a special guest Momentum artist, who will be performing a few songs in this concert. The guest’s special appearance is part of the ‘Momentum: Our Future, Now’ initiative established in response to the pandemic, which sees leading soloists and conductors supporting younger colleagues by inviting them to share the stage at concerts and events taking place over the coming seasons.

“I can think of no better way to nurture the enormous musical talent that is facing such a threat in the face of this pandemic. I dearly hope that performers, promoters and audiences alike become used to the idea that, for the time being, opportunities to make music can be shared rather than competed for. We need to help each other now more than ever.” Roderick Williams
