This festive season, Brixton Chamber Orchestra are bringing a series of music recitals to tenants’ halls across Lambeth, with the orchestra performing for communities in Loughborough, Angel Town, Moorlands, Tulse Hill and Cressingham Gardens estates.
By pledging, you’ll be helping us to bring engaging and entertaining performances to thousands of people, as we seek to bring large communities together in celebration of music! Contributions will go towards the necessary expenses of this ambitious project.
We believe this project has the potential to make a real difference to people. We want to provide an opportunity for communities to come together and enjoy an element of our shared culture – an uplifting musical experience, free of charge. Our secondary objective is to stand as an aspirational example of music-making for young people – using vibrant performance to exemplify what dedication and hard work can achieve.
We have no doubt there are a great number of potentially extraordinary musicians in Lambeth's communities who won’t be lucky enough to ever discover a passion or nurture a gift. We hope this tour might be a small step toward addressing this in our own locality.
Brixton Chamber Orchestra (BCO) is a versatile group of classically–trained musicians, with young professionals and talented amateurs playing side by side. We specialise in classical music but play music of all types, including pop, gospel and grime. We’re all about surprising and unlikely collaborations and are known for playing in unexpected places. We work with music charities and schools in Lambeth, as we want to help bring new audiences to classical music and encourage more people to take up an instrument. BCO was formed just over a year ago. We launched our first Season in July this year and have given five public performances since then. Catch us by the Christmas tree opposite the station on the 9th December.
Risks and challenges
We may not get anyone coming to the concerts. However, with the help of TMO's and RA's we are confident that enough people will hear about the concerts so as to ensure decent crowds.
People might get bored in the concerts! We will carefully curate interesting and varied programmes.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
