Arts Active and the Vale of Glamorgan Festival are working together to bring a wonderfully exciting Primary Schools Concert to St David’s Hall in Cardiff in May 2019. On 21 st May 2019 we are thrilled to present the exuberant and flamboyant Sandbox Percussion – the percussion quartet from New York described by the Washington Post as “revitalizing the world of contemporary music [with] jaw-dropping virtuosity”. This young quartet will be bringing with them an unconventional assortment of instruments, from plant pots to marimbas and wine glasses to rooks (an electronic instrument which uses infrared sensors to interpret hand movement).
This specially curated performance takes a special look at emerging music and living composers and will be presented by composer and music education animateur Helen Woods. This interactive, fun and educational concert will focus on introducing keystage 2 pupils to a new kind of sound world. It’s going to be a visual and aural treat not to be missed!
This concert is co-presented by St. David’s Hall and the Vale of Glamorgan Festival.
