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.
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.
For those working, studying or living in Warwickshire, please consider helping our friends at Live & Local to reverse Warwickshire County Council’s decision to stop funding rural touring events across the County:
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.
