The award-winning Multi-Story Orchestra live and thrive by the simple promise of ‘bringing classical music to unexpected places’, drawing audiences closer whether they are newcomers to classical music or regular concertgoers. Following their outstanding Aldeburgh Festival debut in 2015, they return to give two contrasting concerts in an unusual Ipswich location.
Their first concert sees Multi-Story play Handel and I Am I Say by the orchestra’s co-founder Kate Whitley, a piece written for a choir of local primary school children as well as the orchestra. In the second concert, the orchestra plays one of the grandest and most loved of all Mozart’s orchestral pieces – his dazzling Jupiter Symphony. This concert includes a specially created half hour introduction: the players disperse to all corners of the venue to present ‘The Living Programme Note’, a unique and personal encounter with the music culminating in a full performance of the symphony.
