The Leadmill Studio Orchestra – Live at The Leadmill

24 June @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

£7

Studio Orchestra 2.0 is upon us! We are so thrilled to be working alongside the incredible George Morton (Sheffield based composer / arranger / conductor), Sheffield Music Hub and their Senior Orchestra and conductor John Lyons and some incredible musicians; AJE, Harris, Alice Ede and Sunburst. Since February, we have been meeting up to play music, workshop ideas, rehearse, learn about orchestration and instrumentation in order to produce some epic versions of the artists original music that, until now, have never been heard before!

Join us on Monday 24th June for the culmination of everyone’s hard work ahead of their headline slot at Tramlines Festival in July; two live concerts (an early evening slot where young people are welcome) featuring performances of the Senior Orchestra with each of our artists, playing their own track with a full orchestration. We promise that you won’t hear anything like it.

Early evening show: 6pm – 7.30pm (family friendly, no age restriction)
Evening show: 8.30pm – 10.00pm (14+)

As always, thank you to our funders for helping this to happen; Sheffield Town TrustSheffield Church Burgesses TrustTramlines Community Trust and The Sarah Nulty Power of Music Foundation.

An excerpt written by Ben Folds from Renee Fleming’s ‘Music and Mind, Harnessing the Arts for Health and Wellness’ helps to demonstrate the inspiration behind the Studio Orchestra project;

‘Music has the capacity to heal and inspire, and that’s got to be something worth of our attention. Throughout my (Ben Folds) career, I’ve seen people come into a concert, leaving their anxiety behind them. They experience the opportunity to join with other people, who may have different backgrounds and opposite beliefs outside the building, but they are brought together through the medium of music. By connecting with real people in the audience and orchestra, they can escape from their daily lives and find a brief moment relax and rejuvenate their mental well-being. I can see that when they go back out into the world, they are almost always happier. So we need to ask the orchestras to be even more excellent than they’ve ever been. We need to ask and encourage audiences to come in. We need to plant the seeds and cultivate some new musical flora growth for the next generation. The orchestra is in fact the people’s band. A symbol of civilization and an essential part of life. We don’t want to ask what we can do for the arts. It’s what the arts can do for us.’
