RNS MINIMAL @ WYLAM 2
Calling all lovers of classical music! There’s hardly an area of contemporary culture that hasn’t been touched and transformed by the music of the very talented Philip Glass. And it's safe to say Steve Reich’s Triple Quartet is a musical masterpiece. Together, the pair promise a musical feast for all the senses, set to uplift and move North East audiences. For a truly unique and inspiring live music experience in NE1 this January, join the Royal Northern Sinfonia for the Minimal Series at Wylam Brewery.
