New addition to the line-up for GHT Calling

We are excited to announce a new addition to the line-up for GHT Calling.

Laetitia Stott will play excerpts from a brand new piece of music on the GHT roof – weather permitting! Cornicen (The Horn-Blower) is an incredible piece of music composed for the Cornu (a Roman horn), a Salpinx (the instrument Greek goddess Athena is associated with) and an Iron Age instrument, a Carynx. Commissioned by PLAYLIST Southampton, the piece was composed by horn player Laetitia Stott and received its world premiere just weeks ago as part of GHT’s opening season.

Laetitia will play excerpts from Cornicen between 1 and 2pm on Sunday November 17th as part of GHT Calling. It’s an incredible piece of work and well worth hearing! Laetitia will also play an excerpt downstairs afterwards.

We are hoping to film and photograph the rooftop performance with a drone – fingers crossed for good weather!

Cornicen (The Horn-Blower) was commissioned by PLAYLIST, Southampton as part of their 2019 ACE-funded season.
