Concerto for Beatboxer and Orchestra

Anna Meridith (who you might have seen this year working with Goldie on the BBC’s Maestro) and our inimitable artist in residence Shlomo have been commissioned by Southbank Centre to write a new classical work entitled ‘Concerto for Beatbox and Orchestra’.

I’ll let them explain the project for themselves:

The new piece will be performed on February 19th and 20th 2010 at the Queen Elizabeth Hall with a specially created 20-piece orchestra, plus the Vocal Orchestra (Shlomo’s 8-piece beatbox choir) embedded within the ensemble.

Shlomo has promised to keep us updated on the progress of this hugely ambitious project on his blog.

Tickets for the beatbox concerto and all of Shlomo’s performances at Southbank Centre are available at http://www.southbankcentre.co.uk/festivals-series/shlomo-s-series
