Bold Tendencies summer programme 2012

Last year The Rite of Spring with a large orchestra in the multi storey car park was a phenomenal experience. This year Bold Tendencies, see below, has another exciting summer programme showing the creativity unleashed by our Peckham town centre spaces. Don’t miss their most moving short video of Peckham children, through this programme, learning quite new things about music and life:

Saturday 14th July 8pm Peckham Rye Multistorey Car Park

This Saturday, we are performing John Adams’ Harmonielehre with an 100-piece Orchestra in a Multistorey Car Park in Peckham.

Last year’s performance of Stravinsky’s Rite Of Spring brought more than 1,400 people to the car park. It was described in The Times as ‘the most exciting development in classical music for
decades, if not centuries’ and was one of The Independent’s Musical High Notes of 2011. 

Following this, in Easter 2012 we toured the orchestra around local schools in Peckham in a massive tour bus, playing pieces by Prokofiev, Ravel, Stravinsky and Adams to more than 1,000
children in one day.

Visit to see a short film about the tour.

The orchestra is re-assembling in the Car Park this summer for Harmonielehre: a minimalist symphonic piece which Adams says was inspired by a dream in which he “watched a gigantic
supertanker take off and thrust itself into the sky like a Saturn rocket”
