Douai Abbey's traditional New Year's eve concert at 3.30 pm (NB the time); features Commotio. The programme conducted by Matthew Berry includes music by Allain, Busto, Chilcott, Copi, Cusworth, Ferko, Fricker, Macmillan, McCabe, Pott and Rubbra. Don't be alarmed if you have not heard of half, or even more than half, of these composers. Commotio have an excellent tradition of bringing contemporary composers to a wider audience who then discover that they enjoy new work far more than they ever thought they could. Tickets are available from the Corn Exchange (01635 522733) at £8 (£5 concessions).
