Anatomy of the Orchestra – Open House Festival

Sunday 22nd September, 2019 - Sunday 22nd September, 2019


Arnhem Foyer


Step inside a live orchestra as it plays in this live sound installation lead by globally renowned orchestra conductor and music revolutionary Charles Hazlewood with Army of Generals and members of the British Paraorchestra.

The orchestra is a thing of wonder. It is also, invariably, a thing of mystery: a huge number of musicians playing in perfect time. How does this happen?

Part concert, part installation; the Anatomy of the Orchestra provides a thrilling opportunity for young and old to climb inside this perfect team, to immerse themselves in its mechanisms and to explore its process.
