20180811_velophonic-orchestra-headerThe spontaneous bicycle where YOU are the orchestra!

On Saturday 11 August 2018 from 10:15 – 11:30am, right in the beating heart of Festival 2018 in George Square, the Velophonic Orchestra will explore the possibilities of using bicycles as instruments: playing on bells, spokes, frames, saddles – you name it. The Velophonic Orchestra is an orchestra that anyone can join!

No previous bicycle-playing experience necessary – just follow the conductors and experience being part of the band as they create a piece of music to celebrate each of the four cycling disciplines of the Glasgow 2018 Championships. There’ll even be a part for non-cyclists!

You can download the flyer here.

For more information including details of free outreach workshops around the city, check out the website or Facebook and Twitter pages.

 

 

In August, the European Championships come to Glasgow and Festival 2018 gets underway – and Children’s Classic Concerts can’t wait to join the celebrations with their Soundcycle projectyou’ll not look at a bike the same way again!

Look out for updates on their Facebook and Twitter pages during the build-up and catch their percussionists as they pedal the streets of Glasgow on special bikes – let’s just say, when Samba meets cycling, it sounds wheelie good!

The Essential Orchestra are stepping up to the podium with the Soundcycle concert on Friday 10 August for sporting family fun and medal-winning performances. It will feature the premiere of a new piece of the same name for bicycle and orchestra by Tom Harrold, performed by world-champion percussionist Colin Currie.

IMG_20151020_YokerMilePost1000 mileposts were installed along the National Cycle Network throughout the UK as part of the Millennium celebrations in 2000.

Four different designs were commissioned by four different artists – one from Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The mile post in Yoker is by Scottish sculptor Iain McColl and is called The Cockerel. The influences behind this one are Miro’s “The Fork” and Branusci’s “The Cock”. This design has additional space that has been left for partners to cast their own short message.

NCN-Green-ENG-250x2502015 marks the 20th anniversary of the National Cycle Network and as part of the celebrations the mileposts in Scotland are being given a bit of TLC. Sustrans volunteers with support from partners in the local community have been giving the mileposts a coat of paint. We hope you like what we’ve done!
