Water City Festival Orchestra in a Weekend – BORODIN TO BOLLYWOOD

Trinity Buoy Wharf, 64 Orchard Place, London E14 0JW

Calling all musicians in Olympic Boroughs

Come and participate in a musical medley playing alongside some truly inspirational players!

Water City Festival Orchestra in a Weekend is recruiting amateur musicians including string, wind, brass, percussion and other instruments. If you live or work in East London, are 15 years old or over, play your instrument to the equivalent of Grade 5 or above, and are interested in meeting up to make music, then join up NOW!

A new community-based orchestra is emerging from the watery depths of East London meeting for the first time in Autumn 2010 to play music from Borodin to Bollywood in the unique setting of Trinity Buoy Wharf on the banks of the Thames. This weekend of musical activity culminates in an informal concert for family and friends!

Repertoire includes Vaughan Williams – The Lark Ascending; a Bollywood music medley; and Borodin Symphony No. 2 in B minor “Heroic”. The orchestra is conducted by Rupert Bond and led by the international violin soloist, Michael Bochmann, supported by highly skilled professional and student players.

The commitment – Friday 1st October (6.30pm-9.30pm); Saturday 2nd October (10.00am-9.00pm) and Sunday 3rd October 2010 (10.00am-5.00pm) plus string sectional rehearsal on 18th or 19th September 2010 (date and venue tbc).

COST £45.00 (£25.00 concession – details on application).
