Youth Big Band Opportunity at Curve Theatre!
Date: Sun, 15 Apr 2018, 10:00 - 16:00
Venue: Curve Theatre, 60 Rutland St, Leicester LE1 1SB
Leicester-Shire Music Education Hub have recently developed a partnership with Curve Theatre resulting in new opportunities for young Ensemble players, individual children or school groups to be involved in productions that are being created at the theatre.
The latest opportunity is a project involving a Big Band to accompany their Youth Theatre Group in their Spring term production. They are starting to work on a cabaret style performance with their musical theatre company to give them a way of working in a different genre and are going to transform the studio into a cabaret style venue. They would like a big band to accompany the performers who will sing, write interludes of dramatic material and learn lindy hop to choreograph within the space. They would love to work with a Secondary school or Community Youth Big Band. Curve's resident MD would work with your conductor/band leader to plan content/repertoire.
The week is commencing 16th April so would probably mean the band rehearsing chosen numbers beforehand themselves then attending a rehearsal at Curve on Sunday 15th April, Technical/dress rehearsal on Monday, Tuesday and Weds evening (poss performance on Wed eve) then performances Thursday, Friday, Saturday evenings (maybe an afternoon on the Saturday -still in discussion). This is a unique opportunity to work with a professional MD and perform at Curve.
