Featuring pieces by Sir Harrison Birtwistle and Param Vir, Birmingham Contemporary Music Group is delighted to return to Town Hall, Birmingham, for a full-scale 15-piece performance, Past the Stars.

Past the Stars is a collection of pieces that encompasses everything contemporary music should be: expressive, unexpected, and thought provoking. From Birtwistle’s powerful play on rhythm within Cantus Iambeus,, through Param Vir’s poetic Wheeling Past the Stars, and to the dramatic storytelling piece Hayagriva, each composition takes you on a new emotive journey. Past the Stars is inspired by language and spirituality and elevated by the skill and passion of BCMG’s 15-piece ensemble.

Past the Stars will be their first public performance of 2021.  

After preparing through multiple lockdowns for the opportunity to perform music as a full ensemble, Birmingham Contemporary Music Group’s patience and efforts have been rewarded.
