Drummer/bandleader Ulysses Owens Jr. has performed and recorded with many acclaimed jazz artists. In the past five years, Owens’ career has shifted him from being a “young lion” to grooming the next generation of talent through his performance, production and educational work. Generation Y is the result of those efforts, for which he has selected a new crop of young musicians from his professorship at The Juilliard School. As a composer, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and unique interpreter of the jazz tradition, Camille Thurman is quickly becoming one of the standard bearers for the form, making a dynamic contribution to the legacy of jazz while paying tribute to its heroes. Thurman tours with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra; she is the first woman in 30 years to tour and perform full time two seasons as a saxophonist with the world-renowned orchestra (2018-2020). She is also a featured artist with the Darrell Green Quartet.

We welcome conductor Robert Houlihan back for a concert with a decidedly Nordic flavour, that opens and closes with two marvellously imaginative depictions of fantasy landscapes. In between, the concert features Danish composer Carl Nielsen’s first work and a rare opportunity to showcase the trombone as a solo instrument, featuring Ulster Orchestra Principal Trombone Neil Gallie. This concert is part of the Ulster Orchestra's digital series and will be available for 30 days after the initial streaming. The concert programme is: Rautavaara Lintukoto (‘Isle of Bliss’) Nielsen Little Suite for Strings Larsson Trombone Concertino Sibelius The Tempest Suite No. 2 Conductor Robert Houlihan Trombone Neil Gallie For more information about the music and to book, visit our website!
