And a really inspirational talk it was too! twitter.com/HelenRichenda/…
The OAE education team travelled to York for an exciting weekend of music making, with six concerts over two days.
On Saturday morning we performed TOTS concerts ‘Pitter patter Raindrops’, presented by OAE double bass player Cecelia Bruggemeyer. The audience came armed with their wellies and umbrellas, prepared to embark on an exciting weather adventure with the orchestra.
Saturday evening: around 70 performers on stage with the orchestra for the world premiere of James Redwood’s Concerto for York – a piece he composed in collaboration with local groups. The concert also featured our marvellous Watercycle song, with enthusiastic audience participation.
The Watercycle residency in York was an incredible two-day event, full of enriching encounters, brilliant playing and warmth. We still have seven cities left on our Watercyle tour this year, including London, so there is a lot more fantastic music making to come!
