A fabulous evening last night in Frampton, Lincolnshire. The organisers said it was their largest audience in the twenty years that they have been running the touring scheme. And Fordante certainly had a enjoyable concert performing there.
Many thanks to Nicola Gilroy from BBC Radio Lincolnshire for the interview discussing all things Fordante, easy listening music and film composing. The conversation came about from Fordante’s concert tour dates for 2015 starting in Lincolnshire this Friday with a return concert at Nettleton moving down to Frampton on Saturday and completing this whirlwind tour of the county in Skegness on Sunday evening.
Full details can be found on our concerts page.
Many thanks to Genevieve Tudor from BBC Radio Shropshire for coming over to the studio today and having a chat about all things film, cello and music related. Not sure when the interview is being broadcast out as it might require a little editing first.. Great fun as always though.
Coincidentally also today I’ve just had BBC Radio Lincolnshire on the phone book another interview for next January’s return tour around Lincolnshire.

It seems like it was only yesterday when Fordante were performing at the Regal Theatre but the new 2104/15 season starts tomorrow with our first concert in a series of 12 dates announced so far (more coming soon..).
Friday 17th October at 7:30pm Stretton under Fosse, Rugby, will see the Fordante tour commence performing some fantastic classics from Strauss and Ravel, some of our own music and of course music from the movies.
Fordante’s 2013/14 season finale concert took place at the beautiful Regal Theatre in Tenbury Wells last Saturday.
Many thanks to the staff and audience for their help in making the concert so enjoyable and of course to all of the concerts we’ve had the pleasure of creating this past season throughout the UK from Lincolnshire to Gloucestershire. We’ve already looking forwards to our return to the Regal Theatre in 2015 along with several other dates for the next season – more announced shortly.
Fordante are off up to St Micheal’s Church, Kirk Langley in Derbyshire tonight where we continue our tour with Live & Local. Doors open around 7:30 with concert starting at 8:00pm
Two concerts this weekend will see Fordante perform at Codsall just outside Wolverhampton tomorrow night and then on Saturday we are back over to Rugby to Dunchurch and Thurlaston WI. Both concerts start at 7:30pm.
What a warm, welcoming and wonderful evening Fordante had at Wiloughby last Friday. We certainly left Wiloughby with a smile on our faces.
I have to say that I’m rather looking forward to these next two concerts to spread a little more musical happiness!
