Band on the Wall, Manchester
Doors at 7pm
A new large ensemble led by renowned bassist Steve Berry and featuring 16 of the UK's finest young musicians will premiere a whole performance of new work at Band on the Wall this Sunday.
Three weeks of composition and 3 days of rehearsal at Band on the Wall will culminate in this performance which is part of Walls of Sound, a partnership between Band on the Wall and Brighter Sound and funded by the Arts Council.
Creative Orchestra combines the rich acoustic sound of the classical chamber orchestra with the expressive freedom that comes with improvised and collaborative music making. A combination of musicians from classical, jazz and popular music backgrounds create a fresh, new and exciting take on the orchestra...
