NEW VIDEO: Paraorchestra and Extraordinary Bodies
In June 2016 Colston Hall hosted another successful Fast Forward Festival.
The British Paraorchestra, the world's first professional ensemble of disabled musicians headlined this festival with and Extraordinary Bodies, the world's first professional and integrated circus company. They came together to perform genius composer Terry Riley’s extraordinary cornerstone of musical minimalism In C.
This was so well received by the 500 strong audience that we are performing 'In C' again, the musicians will perform a remixed version with a smaller six piece ensemble as part of the Simple Things Festival on Monday 17th October.
To tease next weeks performance and to remind you of the amazing performance in June, here is a short film about the Paraorchestra and Extraordinary Bodies collaborative project.
