The Multi-Story Orchestra first performed in Peckham in 2011. Ever since that inaugural performance of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring they’ve been wanting to play this monumental work again – and thanks to the amazing team at Selfridges and Bold Tendencies that’s been made possible.
This time you’ll also get your own personal tour of this memorable work with musicians from the Orchestra in a Living Programme Note directed by Fraser Trainer exploring the top four floors of the car park. The full 92-piece orchestra then comes together for a full performance of the piece with conductor Christopher Stark.
Part of the Music Matters at Selfridges campaign.
Bold Tendencies is a not-for-profit creative enterprise and arts organisation that has been based in Peckham, South East London, since 2007 and is located on the disused top four floors of the municipal car park. This performance will take place on the lower covered floors of the site, immediately below the rooftop. On arrival please go to the top floor kiosk where staff will check your ticket and direct you to the performance.
