In Harmony Pop-Up Performance at Central Station
Pupils from Hawthorn Primary School are this afternoon (Monday 29 February 2016) performing at Newcastle’s Central Station in a special pop-up preview performance of their full concert on Monday 14th March.
Thirty-five school children between the ages 8 – 11, playing a whole range of orchestral instruments, are surprising travellers with a preview of their the world premiere of the specially commissioned piece ‘Tuba Train’, composed by Stephen Deazley.
The full concert performance will take place at the Tyne Theatre & Opera House. Lindisfarne’s Ray Laidlaw will compère the show and the Tyne Theatre are really pleased to be supporting the project, giving the young people of Newcastle a performance space in their traditional West End theatre.
Sage Gateshead delivers In Harmony NewcastleGateshead with Hawthorn Primary School as part of a national programme that aims to inspire and transform the lives of children in deprived communities within the UK, using the power and disciplines of community-based orchestral music-making.
