    In the Green Room with Colin Currie

    Thu 12 Apr, 6.30pm
    Run time: 1 hour 

     

    Championing new music at the highest level, Southbank Centre Associate Artist Colin Currie is the soloist of choice for many of today’s foremost composers. In 2006 he founded the Colin Currie Group specifically to perform the music of Reich.

    Currie will be joining Gillian Moore, our Director of Music and Performing Arts, in the Green Room.

    This event was initially scheduled to include Steve Reich, but unfortunately the composer is unwell and won't be able to join Currie and Moore. We hope he will be able to sit down with our in-house experts as part of our In the Green Room series at a later date.
