We’ve just had 16 concert dates confirmed for the 2013/14 season which will see Fordante on tour in the Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire counties between October and May aswell as returning to the Regal, Tenbury Wells next June.
The last concert for the 2012/2013 season is this Saturday at St George’s Church in Kidderminster. The show starts at 7:30pm and along with the usual program of film music and Fordante’s own music the ensemble will be performing some Strauss and other light classics.
Further information about the concert can be found here.
This does mean we are coming to the end of the 2012/13 season however, it’s going to be an exciting year ahead. Already the number of confirmed concerts for the coming year are over double Fordante’s season this year!
Here’s a video of Fordante in concert recently performing Carlos Gardel’s popular Argentine tango “Por una Cabeza”. This piece has been used in many films including Titanic, True lies and Schindler’s List but is probably best known for its role in the 1992 film Scent Of A Woman starring Al Pacino.
Here’s another video of Fordante – this time we’re playing music from the 1965 film Doctor Zhivago including Lara’s Theme.
Here is a short introduction video to Fordante. This 2 minute bitesize snapshot is a sample of the some repertoire of beautiful film and popular classical music that Fordante perform. A great starting point to explore Fordante if you’re short on time…
We’re looking forwards to taking Fordante over to the picturesque river town of Tenbury Wells on Saturday 4th May which is our next concert and performing at The Regal Theatre there. This promises to be a great concert performing some beautiful movie music (including Titanic, Doctor Zhivago, The Godfather, plus more) and light classical music (such as Blue Danube, Stranger In Paradise) aswell as some of our own celtic and worldly inspired melodic music.
Roll on Saturday 4th May!
Just created is a new playlist of videos on YouTube of Fordante.
This video is taken from a concert at the Community 8 Arts Centre, Pershore, where Fordante are performing the main love theme from Titanic also known as “My Heart Will Go On”.
I’ve just uploaded onto YouTube a short 1 minute showreel video with snippets from 3 recent concerts:
