Joe’s new Concerto Grosso commissioned by the Sage Gateshead will be premiered on Friday 11 March at the Sage Gateshead by RNS Moves Ensemble and the Royal Northern Sinfonia, directed by Kyra Humphreys. This is the first time that RNS Moves have performed alongside the Royal Northern Sinfonia and the concert will be streamed live.
RNS Moves is a unique, inclusive ensemble which brings together musicians with and without disabilities to rehearse and perform at Sage Gateshead. The group features members of Royal Northern Sinfonia performing alongside disabled musicians. Joe’s relationship with RNS Moves began in Autumn 2019 when the group performed the first movement of his violin concerto, Macedonia.
