Friday 21 November, 7.30pm

Capstone Theatre

£10/£7 

Free - LHU students                                  

Venice's Janus Face

Gli Archi del Cherubino, directed by Judith Hamza, with Alberto Sanna, violin.

If you think you knew about Venice, wait until you see this glamorous musical show on the city’s ambivalent history and cultural heritage. Long before Vivaldi composed the ‘Four Seasons’ concertos, Venetian musicians were filling the halls, churches, streets and squares of the city with dazzling sonorities produced by a variety of instrumental combinations; long after, they were still trying to get to grip with Venice’s slow but inevitable decadence.

 ‌Beauty of the Beast

Saturday 22 November, 7.30pm

Capstone Theatre

£10/£7

Free - LHU students 

Beauty of the Beast

Presented by Company Chameleon

Beauty Of The Beast is inspired by observations and theories of identity - reference groups where men’s commitment to the group is so strong that affiliation to it is part of their identity; where pressure to conform to group norms is irresistible and inter-group rivalries can be highly competitive and hostile. The aim is to get under the skin of group members (affiliates of football teams, political movements and social groups of all kinds) to unpack the physicality and intimacy, both subtle and blatant, of peer pressure and tribalism in order to draw more universal conclusions about male-male relationships.

To book tickets, all Liverpool Hope University students should email cornerstonefestival@hope.ac.uk.

In Harmony

 

 

 

Friday 28 November, 5.300pm

Capstone Theatre

FREE

 

In Harmony Liverpool

In Harmony Liverpool is now in its sixth year in West Everton having started in February 2009, providing intensive, immersive orchestral music making for children and young people currently up to 16 years of age.

At the end of In Harmony’s first year, we set up a string ensemble with a small group of young musicians who had been part of In Harmony at Faith Primary School, which they named West Everton Super Strings.  Within a term they had taken part in a workshop with Tasmin Little and performed alongside the Simon Bolivar String Quartet.

Each year we’ve grown bigger and our repertoire has expanded which meant that at the end of the summer this year we took the decision to become a full symphony orchestra. We've recruited new players from Beacon School, and with existing young musicians from across West Everton we have added brass, woodwind and percussion sections to create a rich orchestral sound. As we were no longer a string orchestra, we needed a new name, and alongside the young musicians we chose Everton Youth Philharmonic.

This is Everton Youth Philharmonic's debut performance and launch event. We are really pleased and proud to be part of the Cornerstone Festival at the Hope in Everton Campus. Tonight we will be performing repertoire from a range of styles and genres, all developed with these young musicians and their debut concert in mind.

Haydn 'The Creation'

Liverpool Hope University Orchestra and Choir, conducted by Stephen Pratt

Kirsty Hopkins - soprano

Julia Smith - soprano

Simon Berridge - tenor

Samuel Evans - baritone

Nathan Murphy- baritone

Joseph Haydn’s great oratorio The Creation is considered by some scholars (and tonight’s conductor!) to be his greatest masterpiece. Haydn was inspired to compose The Creation after his trips to London, where he heard Handel’s oratorios performed with very large forces. He is thought to have said that, once in the flow, he begged God to let him be able to finish the work – clearly knowing he was onto something special.

based on the book by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry 

Flight to Arras is a poetic and moving retelling of the penultimate flights and autobiographic thoughts of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry over occupied France and is based on his book of the same title. We are taken on a sortie, looking down at the terrible beauty of a culture that is in flight, of villages, families, war, desperation, love, life and death.  Saint-Exupéry was later to be shot down and lost over the sea. Whilst he is best remembered for The Little Prince, he wrote a number of philosophical books as a postal and later as a military pilot.

Student 'Special Timetable' week:

Cornerstone Arts Festival gives students studying at Liverpool Hope University's Creative Campus the opportunity to engage with an exciting array of lectures and workshops which complement their core curriculum. From Monday 24 November to Friday 28 November regular study sessions are replaced with a Special Timetable, organised with academic departments. Please find below the Special Timetables for each department. If students have any queries about the Special Timetable they should contact departmental staff.

 

On Tuesday 25 November, Liverpool Hope University Employability Hub and Cornerstone Arts Festival will be hosting a Creative Careers Day. Creative Careers Day will give students advice on how to pursue a career in the creative sector and the opportunity to meet industry professionals.
