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.

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.
