A Vaganza extravaganza celebrating the music of internationally renowned composer John McCabe in his 70th year. As a former student of The University of Manchester, it is fitting that the composer will be in residence to hear his own music alongside new works by current outstanding students and a sparkling miniature from one of Pendleton College Salford's young composers.
