In 2013 we performed as UMCM for the first time and we chose the theme Music of the Elements.
September’s Water concert was held at Herbert Art Gallery and was preceded by small “popup” concerts to set the scene. Artwork by Kate Wiltshire was displayed on the walls and projected as a stage backdrop with other lighting effects. Guests included flute ensemble Warwick Orchestral Winds and pianists Antoine Mitchell, Darren Leaper and Cecilia Xi.
Our biggest collaborative concert to date was an afternoon and evening event at St Barbara’s Church (Earlsdon) in July, as part of Super Act’s Big Gig, with artwork by Kate Wiltshire on display. Guests included Coventry Corps of Drums, drummer Grano Alvaro, singing group The African Singers, and Coventry and Warwickshire Gospel Choir.
