4 Stages: Eckington School
Date: Monday 25th April 2016 19:30
Venue: Eckington School, Sheffield
First Art and Orchestras Live have teamed up to invite world-class chamber orchestra Manchester Camerata to work with local young people in creating a one-off tour of Eckington, Mansfield, Shirebrook and Sutton-in-Ashfield.
Throughout March and April young people are taking part in creative workshops with professional musicians, composers and theatre artists to create 4 musical and theatrical performance pieces inspired by the people and places where they live.
Each piece, created entirely by the young people with the support of professional composers Laura Bowler and Richard Taylor, will be incorporated into one of four special concerts performed by the orchestra and accompanied by the young people at Eckington School, Create Theatre Mansfield, Shirebrook Academy and Sutton Community Academy.
This will be an opportunity for people to see Britain&s most adventurous orchestra (The Times) perform right on their doorstep, playing a wonderful programme of music including Tchaikovsky, Sleeping Beauty Waltz, Verdi, La Donna e Mobile, Bernstein, Mambo from West Side Story, Mozart, Horn Quintet and Marriage of Figaro, Bizet – Habanera (arr. Simon P), Laura Bowler – Pleasurable, Brahms – Hungarian Dances 5,6 7, Piazzolla – Libertango.
The concerts will be one act, lasting about 75 minutes. There will then be an opportunity for audience members to meet the orchestra and their conductor Mark Heron.
* Price include a £1.36 on-line booking fee.
