Join us in welcoming to East Quay the Aurora Percussion Duo for this interactive family friendly performance in the courtyard. Aimed at children and their parents, Delia and Le will introduce the audience to an array of amazing and unusual percussion instruments.

Since 2010, Delia Stevens and Le Yu have made it their mission to redefine the art of percussion.

Winners of the 60th edition of the prestigious Royal Overseas League Ensemble Award in 2012and alumni of the Park Lane Group Young Artist Scheme, Aurora have since received invitations to perform at the Wigmore Hall, Beijing’s Forbidden City Concert Hall, The Bridgewater Hall, The Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall and Purcell Room, as well as the Edinburgh Festival (live on BBC Radio 3), the Lucerne Festival and for the Royal Family. The duo has undertaken three sell-out tours of China, giving performances and masterclasses in some of the country’s most prestigious concert halls and conservatoires including headlining the RNCM Day of Percussion.

“Aurora Percussion Duo unite with exactitude and give performances of high physicality.”
