BBC ‘Wild Isles’ performance as part of Sustainability Action Week – showcase your work

January 12th, 2024

During the university’s Sustainability Action Week 2024 (18-22 March), the BBC Concert Orchestra are visiting Nottingham to perform ‘Wild Isles in Concert’.

On Wednesday 20 March 2024, Nottingham Royal Concert Hall will host ‘Wild Isles in Concert’, a spectacular symphonic encounter with the wildlife of the British Isles as captured in Sir David Attenborough’s landmark series.

With a cinema-size screen showing highlights from BBC One ‘Wild Isles’, expect breath-taking images as award-winning composer George Fenton conducts the full BBC Concert Orchestra in a live performance of the soundtrack music he composed for them.

On Thursday 21 March 2024, musicians from the BBC Concert Orchestra will perform compositions by University of Nottingham students along to films created by Nottingham Trent University students.

The culmination of workshops with acclaimed filmmaker Alastair Fothergill and composer of BBC TV documentary ‘Wild Isles’, George Fenton, this is an opportunity to experience the next generation’s creative powers.
