Celebrate with us as we mark 50 years of joy!

50 years to the day of our first concert, we welcome you to experience a world of music at Turner Sims. International artist friends return to our stage for a vibrant evening of music, culminating in the live premiere of Tunde Jegede’s Voyages of the Heart.

Voyages of the Heart is one of the defining projects of our recent history. We commissioned it for the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower ship’s departure from Southampton. Due to pandemic restrictions in 2021, it has only ever been experienced on screen.

Reunited for our anniversary, the Voyages of the Heart Ensemble give Tunde’s powerful work the live premiere it deserves.

Voyages of the Heart is about heritage, journeys, migration and the transitory sense of home and identities. [It questions] our perception of culture, memory, race and how we see the world.

Tunde Jegede

The premiere is paired with performances from award-winning pianists Federico Colli and Zoe Rahman, and the highly innovative Piatti Quartet.

Join us for classical, jazz and global joy with friends old and new.

Voyages of the Heart (2021), part of Southampton’s Mayflower 400 programme, supported by Arts Council England, Heritage Lottery Fund, Southampton City Council and University of Southampton
