22-24 April: Free New Music Biennial Festival

Coventry Editorial 14th Apr, 2022

New Music BiennialĀ is a three-day festival giving you the chance to hear music across a range of genres, from classical and chamber opera, to jazz, folk and electronic.

If you’ve never tried some of these genres before, now’s your chance – and with each venue a short walk from each other, you can enjoy a range of new music in a short space of time.
  • Tickets: FREE
  • Where? Coventry Cathedral, Drapers’ Hall and HMV Empire
  • When? Fri 22 Apr 2022 to Sun 24 Apr 2022

Of the 20 new pieces of music, ten are brand new works selected from an open call and ten are pre-existing New Music Biennial works from across the last 10 years to mark its launch back in 2012.

Presented in partnership with PRS Foundation, Southbank Centre, BBC Radio 3 and NMC Recordings with support from Arts Council of England, Arts Council of Northern Ireland and Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
