We’re very pleased to have been invited up to Melbourne Assembly Rooms in Melbourne, Derbyshire on Saturday 17th October. Although we have performed several times in beautiful Derbyshire this is a new concert hall for Fordante.
The concert will feature some wonderful music by Strauss and popular light classics such as The Blue Danube Waltz, Bolero, Radetsky March, well known evocative film music along with some of Fordante’s own light, easy listening music.
From standing ovations, to sell out venues and multiple encores – Fordante’s 2015 ‘From Strauss To The Movies’ concert season was a first for us in many ways. Catch a 2 minute overview of Fordante’s tour here:
This time last week Fordante were preparing to go on stage at Alstonefield Community Centre, in the beautiful Peak District National Park. Today I’ve just received a very warm review of the concert which can be found here. I’m looking forwards to make a return visit in the not too distant future.
We’re looking forward to Fordante’s busy weekend of concerts at Alstonefield in Staffs on Friday 1st 7:30pm and Clent on Saturday 2nd May, starting at 8:00pm. Later on in the month we’re over at Dordon close to Tamworth which is the last concert in the current tour before Fordante return in August.
We’re looking forward to bringing a little Fordante spirit and music to St Barnabus Centre in Danesmoor, Derbyshire tomorrow night. Doors open at 7:00pm for a 7:30pm concert of light classics and film music from Strauss to Bolero and a little tango in between!
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.
