Upcoming a.P.A.t.T. Orchestra concert

Musical_Settings_On_the_Earth_colour_posterAfter the city-wide processional extravaganza that was last November's Sound Relay, the a.P.A.t.T. Orchestra return with the first in a 4-part concert series - Musical Settings - that will see them explore different environments, both physical and musical.

Musical Settings Part 1: On the Earth, finds the orchestra in the bubble within a bubble that is Sefton Park - a landscaped slice of rurality within the constructed urbanity of the city of Liverpool. The programmed music deals with themes of simplification and distance from the chaos of modern life.

Everyone was delighted to hear last month that Africa Oyé was going to be free after they had announced charges of £5 for entrance to what is Liverpool's best outdoor music festival.

Oyé have always maintained that they would love to keep the festival as a free event, and now and as they have told us against all odds they have managed to again make this a reality.

However, that doesn't stop them from needing a little extra support and so that have launched their own giving site on Indiegogo.

a.P.A.t.T. Orchestra - Call for Players

The next a.P.A.t.T Orchestra event is due to take place on Sunday 5th June in Sefton Park,  and they are looking for more players for the Orchestra.

You don't have to be able to read Music which I thought might hold loads of people back,  you simply have to be able to follow instructions. Tear paper here bang it on the ground.
