Composer Johnny Parry and our community choir are reaching the final stages of their preparations for this Thursday’s world premiere performance of Concerto Magnificent: An Anthology of All Things.
After 3 months of rehearsals they had a full dress rehearsal and met the orchestra for the first time on Saturday.
Tickets are selling fast for what promises to be an extraordinary night, a one off choral spectacular written and performed in collaboration with you.
Local photographers Graham Watson and Darren Marsh have been following the choir as they prepare for the event, and Luton’s Runaway Media are making a film which we’ll share later in the year.
Concerto Magnificent has been commissioned and produced by Bedford Creative Arts and is the second of our major commissions for 2012 following the public artwork Lace in Place by Arabel Rosillo de Blas.
