First Light Ensemble
Sunday 23 June 2019
07:00 – 07:45
Get your early morning fix of inspirational music as our resident First Light Ensemble takes to the Sunlight Stage as part of our Sunday morning festivities. The Ensemble was especially created to perform at the Festival by Clio Gould (well-known in Lowestoft from her time as leader of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra) and Jonathan Morton (Artistic Director of the Scottish Ensemble) and comprises a dynamic and versatile group of musicians of international repute including Thom Gould (Aurora Orchestra) and Donald Grant and Simone van der Giessen (Elias Quartet).
For this set, they will perform music to include the iconic The Lark Ascending by Vaughan Williams with soloist Thom Gould and a selection of Scottish and Danish folk tunes in homage to Lowestoft’s sea-faring heritage.
