Hull scraps music library for a Karl Jenkins commissionmain
Could you possibly make it up?
Hull Philharmonic Society has financed the (Jenkins) commission with support from Hull 2017 and insurance money after the loss of its music library in the Christmas 2013 tidal surge.
“We decided not to replace the old music, but to create something new for 2017, so some good has come out of adversity,” said musical director Andrew Penny. “It is a major coup for the orchestra to attract a composer of Sir Karl’s stature.”
