Ping! By Joe Cutler
Ping! is a collaboration between composer Joe Cutler, the Coull String Quartet and Fusion Table Tennis Club which explores the distinct sounds and rhythms that table tennis players can create. The piece will create intricate cross-rhythms between table tennis players and the string quartet, with film by international visual artist Tom Dale.

Five Rings Triples by Howard Skempton
‘Five Rings Triples’ is Howard Skempton’s Olympian twist on the English Change Ringing tradition – a heady combination of music, sport-like skill, and maths for the world’s heaviest instruments. During the day you can hear the piece being rung at St Paul’s Church by the Coventry Diocesan Guild of Bellringers, visit the bell tower, discover the art of bell ringing and much more.

The Voyage by Michael Wolters & Stan’s Cafe
The Voyage is a playful opera for a voice, a double bass and eight recorders in which the audience travel on a journey with a young hero seeking to become an immortal in a fateful trial of speed. Hold onto your seats.
