Tinderbox Orchestra take to the stage!


Summerhall has been providing space to Edinburgh’s most exciting youth orchestra, Tinderbox Orchestra since Christmas for rehearsals, for performances and for fun! Finishing their summer term with an Audio-Visual feast, this youth orchestra will be staging their most exciting and ambitious gig yet at the Queens Hall on Saturday 23rd June 2012. They will be introducing a new 30 piece choir to their 50-piece orchestra, and collaborating with 3 of Scotland’s finest bands of the moment – Broken Records, North Atlantic Oscillation and G-Code.

The show will feature on stage collaborations between the bands and the orchestra, as well as a number of original compositions written by the orchestra and bands, including a new orchestral composition led by internationally renowned composer Professor Nigel Osborne.

Hidden Door Arts Collective, another group that Summerhall supports with providing space, will be providing live visuals and other arts too. 20 film makers have put together a visual extravaganza, featuring 5 simultaneous projections VJ’d live to synchronise with the music.  The event will also feature the multi-arts project Frontiers (www.tinderboxfrontiers.co.uk), involving installations and projections made by groups of young people from a range of social, ethnic and religious backgrounds, and curated by a fantastic team of artists.

Summerhall would like to support each an every one of our businesses and artists and we believe this concert will be a spectacular night, so please do come along and support.  It’s only £10 (£8 student) and tickets are available from the Queens Hall.
