Anglia Ruskin Orchestra and Chorus present a programme of orchestral and choral music featuring the music of Percy Grainger, the great Australian composer, pianist and folk-music collector. Grainger’s experiments in new forms of music, his embracing of the notion of democratic music making, and his love of folk music from all over the world make him a unique figure in twentieth-century music.

This special gala concert, featuring the combined forces of Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge Voices, the St Augustine's Singers and Symphonia Academica, provides a rare opportunity to experience some of Grainger’s most exhilarating compositions alongside music by composers he has influenced, including the Dutchman Louis Andriessen, the American minimalist Lou Harrison, and Britain’s Gavin Bryars.
