NTU Music's annual spring concert

Saturday 14 March 2015 marked NTU Music’s annual spring concert at the Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham.

This year the NTU Choir joined forces with the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra and the Cantamus Girls Choir to perform The Peacemakers; Karl Jenkins' most recent large-scale composition, conducted by Nottingham Trent University’s Director of Music Matthew Hopkins.

Dedicated to all those who lost their lives during armed conflict, the 200-strong choir, together with the internationally renowned orchestra, performed the piece with strength and gusto.

The programme also included inspirational young pianist Joseph Moog, who performed his spectacular rendition of Grieg's Piano Concerto in A Minor. His phenomenal performance received an incredible response from the audience. His personable and humble nature won their hearts, as he insisted on sharing equal recognition with conductor Matthew Hopkins.

The evening concluded with the Royal Philharmonic accompanying both choirs for Parry’s powerful anthem I Was Glad. Choir and orchestra members gave their all to create an astonishing sound, providing the perfect ending to a successful and memorable evening.

Proceeds from the event were donated to the John van Geest Cancer Research Centre, Nottingham Trent University’s purpose-built scientific facility.
