Alex Patterson's Big Weekend
St Barnabas Cathedral, Nottingham
Sat 28 - Sun 29 May 2011
This end of May Bank Holiday weekend will see the acoustics of St Barnabas Cathedral filled with the ‘piquant harmonies’ of Alex Patterson’s music when the composer-in-residence makes his mark during four events taking place throughout the cathedral.
The release of composer’s highly anticipated choral music CD, ‘I lift up my eyes’ will coincide with the event, with the official launch taking place in the neighbouring Cathedral Hall following the opening concert on Saturday 28 May.
