Many thanks to all of those who came to last Saturday’s evening concert at Breadsall Hall, Derby for the warm welcome Fordante received. This was our first concert organised through Live and Local which from our perspective and from the sincere feedback we received was a success.
That was fun! I’ve just had a 15 minute Live interview talking about Fordante, our music, history and future. Many thanks to Pete at Choice Radio, Worcester, for the opportunity.
A week today, Friday 2nd November, Fordante will be performing at the Ledbury Market Theatre. The Hereford Times have a mention about the concert here:
Many thanks to Paul J Horton (www.pauljhorton.co.uk) for his use of the photos of Fordante on stage at Birmingham’s Symphony Hall that were used to make this video. The track, ‘The Arrival’, is the title track taken from Fordante’s album of the same name.
The rural touring agency Live & Local have confirmed a November concert date (others to follow soon) – Fordante are looking forward to performing at Breadsall Memorial Hall in Derby on Saturday 10th November at 7:30pm.
Prior to this however is our next concert which is on the Friday 2nd November at 8:00pm and marks our return to Ledbury Market Theatre .
Further details can be found on our Diary page.
Back at the end of March earlier this year Fordante gave a concert at Wem Town Hall in Shropshire. The video below is of the ensemble performing ‘Sereno’ which is one of their newest pieces composed, as it’s Italian name suggests, to be bright and cheerful. ‘Sereno’ was inspired in part by the style and sound of the fantastic Italian group Rondo Veneziano.
Another first for the group was to perform with video projected as can be seen in the video. This imagery worked well and is currently being developed for future shows.
Here’s a recent recording of Fordante performing music from The Godfather.
We’ve just returned from Fordante’s concert at Stretton Grandison in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust. I’d like to thank Jane for organising the event and asking us to perform and of course offer a big pat on the back to Jane and the audience of over 150 for raising several thousands of pounds for the charity.
Many thanks to all those who came up and said how much they enjoyed the concert. It was our pleasure to be able to perform in the beautiful gardens on a gorgeous summer’s evening.
Fordante look forward to returning to Worcestershire on 2nd November at Ledbury Market Theatre.
Fordante are pleased to be supporting the Teenage Cancer Trust in a concert to help raise money for this particularly worthwhile charity.
This Sunday evening event will see Fordante perform a concert of film soundtracks with a mix from Fordante’s worldly influenced light classical music and will include an auction of promises.
Gates open at 5pm to bring along a picnic to enjoy in the gardens before the concert starts at 6:30pm. Bar/drinks available.
The summer concert will be outside but should the weather take an unfortunate downturn then the concert will proceed in the adjacent church at Stretton Grandison.
Entrance is by ticket only at £10.
The latest video of Fordante in rehearsals performing the beautiful “The Secret Wedding” from the 1995 film ‘Braveheart’ starring Mel Gibson has just been uploaded to YouTube and is available on our Videos page. This was recorded in May just prior to Fordante’s concert at The Borderlines Film Festival.
Watch out for more videos both live and in the studio with Fordante’s own music aswell as film music coming soon…
