Richard Tandy and Dave Scott-Morgan (Electric Light Orchestra) present a re-imagining of Earthrise

About this Event

Dave Scott-Morgan and Royal Birmingham Conservatoire Orchestra present EARTHRISE

by Dave and Richard Tandy (Electric Light Orchestra musicians)

Conductor Daniele Rosina

Amazingly, its fifty years since the first moon landing and the first earth rise was seen by men but still Earthrise - the music of Richard Tandy, long time keyboard player for The Electric Light Orchestra and Dave Scott-Morgan (guitarist, vocals and composer) - chimes on… weightless and timeless, an evergreen commemoration to the excitement and mystery of the time.

It was on Christmas Eve 1968 when the crew of Apollo 8 first orbited the moon as a reconnaissance for the Apollo 11 mission and took the iconic photograph of the earth rising out of the lunar landscape, but was a long time later - in 1985 – (when the British pop group ELO were between touring dates), that the Tandy Morgan Duo recorded the album of songs Dave had written about that defining event.

We are delighted to invite you to this première orchestral presentation of the symphonic concept album Earthrise. The concert is a unique opportunity to hear Richard and Dave’s album as interpreted and rearranged by Royal Birmingham Conservatoire postgraduate composer Emily Abdy and graduate composers Rob Roberts and Peter May.
