Orchestra on The Beach
On the Sunday 30th July @ 10pm a 40 piece Orchestra will be performing on the sandy beach of the Thames- just on front of the Festival Hall. They are called The Ricciotti Ensemble, from Holland, & are touring round the UK for 5 days this summer. They are a ‘street orchestra’ and take only 4 minutes to set-up & will be playing a very mixed repertoire of old & new music, including pieces especially written for them, and will have special guest soloist, the young dutch opera diva, Maaike Poorthuis. This is going to be a VERY unique & magical event – and certainly the first time a full orchestra has ever played on the Thames Beach in central london. This event is brought to you by nonclassical & Reclaim The Beach (who run the now infamous Beach parties every summer). Please Bring your own drinks.. as we don’t have a license… arrive from 9.30pm, when the tide starts to go down! + IT’S FREE.
And if you can’t make Sunday they are playing in by the Tate Modern on Wednesday 2nd Aug @ 9pm.
-this is for real – it is at 10pm on the beach just in front of the festival hall [under the ‘festival pier’]- tell everyone you know & make sure you are there…
