From 24 to 27 January 2019, the University of Manchester will be hosting a four-day conference on Polish-born composer Mieczyslaw Weinberg - just in time to kick off the celebrations of Weinberg’s 100th birthday and his centenary year 2019.  Professor David Fanning from the University of Manchester and Dr. Michelle Assay from the Université de Paris Sorbonne have invited delegates from around the world to discuss this exceptional composer. Joining the event as an honorary guest will be his oldest daughter Victoria Bishops. 

Alongside the conference, the Belgian string quartet Quatour Danel will be performing a series of concerts before departing on their Weinberg-based string quartet tour.
