Belfast’s newest dance night wants you to hear how we used to shake it back in the day. Like way back in the day….
Before DJ Dan Ferguson lays down the tunes for you to dance the night away, come listen to the Pure Class Strings and Soprano Emma Morwood perform an eclectic selection of the music of movement spanning the centuries.
Belfast born soprano Emma Morwood performs all over the U.K. and Ireland, singing with the Ulster Orchestra, Irish National Opera, Irish Chamber Orchestra, and Edinburgh International Festival. She appears in Northern Ireland Opera’s award winning film ‘Old Friends and Other Days’, and recently jumped-in to sing the role of Iris Robinson in Conor Mitchell’s ‘Abomination: a DUP Opera’ with the Belfast Ensemble.
Roger McCann is a double bass player with a wealth of experience playing with the top UK and Ireland orchestras. After 20 years in London he recently relocated home to Belfast and is delighted to be contributing to the city’s exciting music scene especially with its UNESCO recognition. He is the Director of the Pure Class Strings.
