Freshers Week is over!! Managed to participate 2 concerts this week: Cage's Musiccircus and Welcome Week Concert "Dance Sing and Shout"
Musiccircus is a work by John Cage that was first performed in 1967 and is a fascinating installation type piece. It is an immersive experience both for performers and audience, who are free to walk around the performance space and soak up the music that is going on in any area of the space at that moment in time. We put on an abridged version (not the 3 hour event suggested by Cage this time!) "Dance Sing and Shout" was a collaboration between Royal Holloway Orchestras and Choirs, performing music ranging from Tippet's Negro Spirituals to Tchaikovsky's Cappriccio Italienne! It was my first concert as Assistant Orchestral Manager, and we had some great fun in rehearsals (including me standing on a table for a group selfie!) Bring on Second Year of Uni!! #freshersweek #welcomeweek #concerts #singing #percussion #musiccircus #orchestra #percussionsquad #concert #twoconcertsoneweek #longislandicetea #notforglenny
