About This Event
Following the success last year of their Proms debut on their home turf in Peckham, Christopher Stark and The Multi-Story Orchestra return for a programme that picks up two of the threads running through this year’s Proms, and continues our showcase for talented young musicians.
The classical symphony gets an appropriately urban, contemporary makeover in the pulsing rhythms and metallic glitter of John Adams’s Harmonielehre, while Kate Whitley’s I am I say, written for local schoolchildren to perform, is inspired by nature but also firmly rooted in the sounds and communities of the city.
The concert opens with Bach’s ‘Wachet auf’ (Sleepers, Awake) in Granville Bantock’s unexpectedly rich orchestration.
There will be no interval
