New Note Orchestra Christmas Concert
Sun 4 December 2016, 14:30 – 16:30 GMT
New Note Orchestra has been collaborating with The University of Brighton and Cascade Recovery Choir to create an exciting brand new piece of music titled 'A Soundscape of Brighton'. The music has been entirely composed by the orchestra members and the Cascade Recovery Choir.
We will be showcasing 'A Soundscape of Brighton' at our Christmas concert on Sunday 4th December 2.30 - 4.30pm at St Luke's. Prestonville, 64 Old Shoreham Road, Brighton. BN1 5DD.
We are pleased to announce that we will be joined by two special guests, working their musical magic!
Legendary bass player Herbie Flowers will be switching to tuba for a duet with one of our orchestra members. Herbie is one of Britain's best loved performers and in a glittering career has recorded with everyone from Elton John and David Bowie to Paul McCartney. He wrote the famous bass line for Lou Reed's ‘Walk on the Wild Side’.
Terry Pack's musical career spans more than four decades and has included spells with The Enid, Cozy Powell, Graham Bonnet and Steve Hackett. In recent years, he has turned his focus to jazz and improvised music. His recent collaborations read like a ‘who’s who’ of the British jazz scene - Claire Martin, The Cloggz, Ben Castle, Bobby Wellins, Nigel Price and Martin France. He's now formed the ensemble 'Trees' which is an inclusive and community-based group comprising of up to 40 musicians. At our Christmas concert he'll be performing with musicians from the group.
