The Multi-Story Orchestra, conducted by Christopher Stark, will be visiting Flemingate Shopping Centre, Beverley, on Saturday, 8 September at 5pm with a programme to delight the family.
They started in 2011, presenting extraordinary performances in unexpected settings. From car parks to schools and festivals, they create amazing live classical music experiences performed by incredible musicians. Winners of the 2016 Royal Philharmonic Society Award, the orchestra has been celebrated as one of the most exciting ensembles to emerge in recent years.
The evening starts off with musicians spread across the car park, with the audience free to explore and get involved; finding out about the music and meeting the 60 piece orchestra, before everyone comes together for a full performance of Schumann’s captivating Second Symphony.
The concert will mark the return of the RPS Award- winning Classically Yours, after a successful funding application to Arts Council England which secured funding until March, 2020.
The next phase of Classically Yours builds on the work with orchestras, promoters and local music partners in the coastal areas of Bridlington and Withernsea, targeting those least engaged in cultural activities and developing new audiences for orchestral music activities. The programme will offer a wide range of orchestral experiences for people who have never engaged with music before, collaborating with four orchestras.
The event in Beverley is suitable for ages eight and over. Tickets cost: Adults £6, Children £5 and are available from Beverley Library, The Spa Box Office (01262) 678258 or Bridspa.com
