The orchestra will be performing from about 2.00pm until 3.45/4.00pm in the Covered Court area of the Herbert Art Gallery. We will play two sets of popular and light classics, with some demonstrations of instruments and opportunities for audience to become involved, for example having a go at conducting.
The event will be open access and people will be free to come and go as they please, like the Coventry precinct concerts we used to do. There will also be some craft activities for children, run by the Gallery staff, themed around Fathers’ Day as it is that day too.
Pieces will include:
The Hall of the Mountain King
Well known extracts from Carmen
Extracts from West Side Story
The Thunderbirds theme music
An arrangement of Queen’s ‘We are the Champions’
