In Focus: Gilbert and Gorb at Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM), Manchester, 20–21 June 2018, free entry - Visit now

Over the course of two days and six events (five of which are free), the RNCM celebrates two of the most important composers to be associated with the college.

Anthony Gilbert and Adam Gorb are the only two Heads of Composition that the RNCM has had during its 50-year history, helping to shape the institution’s highly regarded Composition department.

The festival’s events include an In Conversation with Gorb (11am, 21 Jun, Forman Lecture Theatre, Free), plus world premieres from both composers – including of Gorb’s The Path to Heaven (7.30pm, 21 Jun, Concert Hall, £15), which will be performed by Psappha and RNCM musicians to close the two-day event.
