Extreme Cello Cathedral Roof Tour

I received an email this weekend about a musical charity event taking place across England next month – the Extreme Cello Cathedral Roof Tour. A trio of cellists are undertaking to play on the roof (or as high up as health and safety will let them) of all England's 42 cathedrals in the course of just 12 days. Think of it as a version of the Three Peaks Challenge, but with 42 'peaks' and added bulky string instruments… The whole thing is in aid of Shelter and Aspire; Londoners can catch the group about midway through their tour at Southwark (27th July) and St Paul's (28th).

No word on repertoire as yet, but a suite from Fiddler on the Roof seems essential, with possibly Stockhausen's Helicopter Quartet in case of emergency rescue…
