Schools Concerts: May 29 - June 1

Details and booking

What happens when the man-made enters the natural landscape? What will happen to these pristine environments? Composer Katy Abbott, uses the true events of a cargo ship in 1992 spilling nearly 29,000 duck bath toys into the North Pacific Ocean as the catalyst for her work.

Inspired by artist Matthew Quick’s body of work, Introduced Species is a three-movement aural depiction of the Trash Vortex, one of the Pacific Ocean’s ‘garbage patches’. Katy Abbott brings the plastic that pollutes our oceans into the orchestra and challenges us to hear our environment.

This unique schools concert features composer Katy Abbott live on stage with conductor Iain Grandage and the SSO in an exploration of the ocean through sound and image.
