I’ve just been going through and added some of the feedback Fordante have been receiving on our tour around Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire on to the reviews page. All I can say is that it looks as though you’ve been enjoying what we’ve been performing – which is obviously great to hear.
Musical suggestions and ideas are all noted too in preparation for our next tour (more details to follow)…
We’re halfway through our tour around Nottinghamshire. Last night we were made very welcome at Lound which is towards the top of the county and the previous night Fordante were at Eastwood School.

Tonight the tour takes a slight diversion over the county border to Rempstone, close to Loughborough and finishes at Caunton Dean Hole Community Centre, Newark tomorrow evening.
Following on from our successful tour around Leicestershire last month Fordante are now returning to Nottinghamshire for four consecutive concerts. The first concert is tonight at Eastwood Comprehensive School, Eastwood, 7:30pm.

I think it is fair to say that Fordante had an absolute ball last night at Countesthorpe College Theatre, Leicester. Great lighting, sharp video projection and acoustics aside, the atmosphere and audience were great which made for a really enjoyable show and an a pleasure to be able to perform there. Many thanks to Centre Stage and Active Arts for organising the concert.
Fordante continue their tour and are moving over to Rutland tonight for a concert at Moreton.
Fordante kicked of the 2014 season last night with a concert at Loughborough Endowed Music School.

The Fordante ensemble are performing at Heage in Derbyshire tonight as part of the Live & Local touring program.
Doors open at 7:00pm for a 7:30pm concert start.

Many thanks to everyone last night at the Mareham le Fen concert and our new friends at Hemingby and Nettleton from the previous concerts. Sadly, tonight is our last concert in Lincolnshire but hopefully we’ll be back in the not too distant future as you’ve all made us very welcome.
One notable comment from a gentleman in the audience was “the Best musical concert I’ve ever been too in my 72 years – it almost moved me to tears”.

Next stop – Fordante are off to Derbyshire.
Fordante are in Mareham Le Fen tonight following yesterday’s concert at Nettleton and Hemingby the previous evening.
Live radio interview on BBC Radio Lincoln with Rob Underwood today at 2:10pm. Looking forward to talking about Fordante and our tour around the region which starts tonight. Possibly even chat a little about the imminent release of the Vendetta film soundtrack…
The tour started well – three concerts already have been performed in Nottinghamshire and we’re off to Lincolnshire tomorrow for another busy weekend with four concerts programmed.
