Saturday 28th August sees Onyx Brass visiting Eastbourne to perform the premiere of Clive Whitburn’s Music for Rooftops. In what will be a perfect piece for our outdoor, socially distant times, it forms the centre piece of a recital taking place on the balcony of the town’s Congress Theatre. The composer writes: “As dusk falls…
Back in June, we got together for a tentative rehearsal and it got us thinking how we can move forward in these socially distant times. No indoor performing and the need to be 2 metres or more apart, we settled on a concept we’ve titled Instant Concert.
And for the want of a better phrase , it does what it says on the tin. We arrive, set up and perform. Nothing is needed by the venue as the ensemble is entirely self sufficient. Portable, weatherproof and audible across large distances, we are able to present a large selection of serious classical music to light, jazzy numbers suitable to be adapted to any outdoor occasion.
Sounds interesting? We’ve played at intimate garden parties to large outdoor events and would be more than happy to advise you on how the group could be involved. Please get in touch here.
