THE classical music world will join together with the modern art of beatbox at the University of Chichester tomorrow.

A concert in the Chapel of the Ascension at the university’s Bishop Otter Campus will be the first opportunity for the public to hear the piece composed by senior lecturer Adam Swayne.

Students will provide the beatbox – a form of vocal percussion – while Mr Swayne conducts a 30-strong ensemble featuring the university’s contemporary music group.

Mr Swayne said: ‘The piece is a traditional classical concerto, based on classical rules.

‘I hope our piece features a specific clash of styles.’

Tickets for the concert which starts at 7.30pm can be bought on the door for £5 (£3 concessions).
