For our new commission we are looking for sixty Bedford schoolchildren to knock Bedford’s socks off in new mass percussion project PUNKIT!
Award winning composer Stephen Deazley is looking for 60 young people aged 11-14 to help him create and perform his new mass percussion work PUNKIT! in Bedford this July.
Inspired by street music and the raw energy of late 70’s punk music, PUNKIT! is an explosive and energetic new music work commissioned for young people by Bedford Creative Arts.
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!
If you’re aged 11-14 and would like to take part, Bedford Creative Arts wants to hear from you.
“You really don’t need to be a musician. If you love making noise and having a lot of fun, then this is for you,” says the composer Stephen Deazley.
Rehearsals start at 4.30pm on 3rd June 2015 at The Bedford Music Centre, Mowbray Road, Bedford MK42 9XA
and weekly until the concert at Bedford Corn Exchange on Thursday 16th July 2015.
There’s still time to get involved!
