Bangor Music Festival, Pontio, Bangor

Over two days the Bangor Music Festival will give you a unique opportunity to explore the acoustics of Pontio, to learn more about science in relation to music and of course, to experience the latest in contemporary and experimental music. The Swansea Laptop Orchestra will present a sonic exploration of new works by six young composers within the Codi ELECTRONICS concert. Familiar and unfamiliar sounds of the flute will be featured in the atmospheric concert by the talented Richard Craig and Electroacoustic Wales. Theatr Bryn Terfel will be the location for the final concert featuring the second performance by newly formed UPROAR, where they present 10 commissions by 10 composers from Wales.

Over the two days events will take place in various locations within Pontio and Mathias Hall at the School of Music and Media, with an opportunity to experience music for young children with Marie-Claire Howorth, to explore sonic objects with Techniquest Glyndŵr and to be captivated by student compositions performed by the Bangor New Music Ensemble. Join in the celebrations! Look out for intriguing artworks located throughout Pontio created by students from the Art Foundation Course at Coleg Menai, inspired by the festival’s theme – Acoustics.
