Dessa To Join BBC National Orchestra of Wales For Second CoLaboratory Gig

CoLaboratory presents an alternative orchestral experience for audiences, in which BBC NOW invite musicians from different genres of music to collaborate with them to fuse two musical worlds.

The first gig in the CoLaboratory series sees the orchestra work with American rapper, singer and writer Dessa (7 November, BBC Hoddinott Hall).

A style defined by a ferocity, wit, tenderness, and candour, Dessa gave six sold-out performances in a recent collaboration with the Grammy award-winning Minnesota Orchestra and her newest record, Chime, charted on the Billboard top-200 and debuted at number nine on the US Alternative charts.

Audiences will have a truly unique experience, as Dessa’s American roots intertwine with music influenced by Wales and its language, including collaborations with BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales and pupils from Lewis School (Pengam, Rhymney Valley).

Due to the first gig with Dessa selling out so fast, a second late night gig at BBC Hoddinottt Hall, Wales Millennium centre on 7th November has been added commencing at 9pm.

  • Tickets: are £15. Concessions, Student Tickets and Family Tickets available.

  • Age guidance: 15+

  • For details contact BBC National Orchestra of Wales Audience Line: 0800 052 1812 (Monday-Friday).
