Leeds Cathedral welcomes Roxanna Panufnik in conversation with Philip Moore

July 5, 2022 @ 7:00 pm

As part of the 2022 Leeds International Organ Festival (LIOF) we are welcoming the celebrated composer Roxanna Panufnik to Leeds Cathedral on Tuesday 5 July for an ‘in conversation’ event hosted by fellow British composer Philip Moore, who for 25 years was Organist and Master of the Music at York Minster.

The interview will be at Wheeler Hall at 7.00pm – and will be preceded by a 6.30pm concert in the Cathedral given by the Senior Girls and Choral Scholars of Leeds Cathedral Choirs.

Roxanna has written a wide range of pieces including opera, ballet, music theatre, choral works, chamber compositions and music for film and television, which are regularly performed all over the world. Of Polish Catholic heritage, one of Roxanna’s most widely-performed works is her Westminster Mass, commissioned for Westminster Cathedral Choir on the occasion of Cardinal Hume‘s 75th birthday in May 1998.

Previous ‘in conversation’ interviewees at the LIOF have included composers Sir James MacMillan and Master of the Queen’s Music, Judith Weir.

LIOF was ‘online only’ during the pandemic, so Roxanna and Philip will be the Festival’s first guests ‘live and in person’ at the Cathedral for two years!

Admission is FREE and there is no need to book or reserve a place!
