Inspired by street music and the raw energy of late 70’s punk music, PUNKIT! is an explosive and energetic new music work for young people by award winning composer Stephen Deazley.
Featuring internationally renowned local percussion soloist Joby Burgess, it will be performed by a unique orchestra of sixty young people from Bedford each using their own ‘punked up’ percussion box to create a bold and invigorating experience. It promises to quite literally knock your socks off!
