Backdated from previous BA website
The BA is returning to its roots in Bloomsbury Village and we are working with all stakeholders in the area towards making the Bloomsbury Village Fete an event to remember over the weekend of 4/5/6 July 2008. This event is part of LFA2008 – the London Festival of Architecture 2008 which runs from 20 June – 20 July, focusing on Bloomsbury on the 5/6 July. We are looking for ideas, volunteers and participants between now and July.
We have applied for road closures in Museum St, Bury Place and Coptic Street and will be working closely with the residents and business in the area to make this a memorable event.
Please get in touch if you would like to participate and let us know what you would like to see happen and what can you do to make it happen?
We have a few spectacular events planned 🙂
All ideas are welcome. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
What is EPICOVID?
The London Irish Symphony Orchestra presents EPICOVID to celebrate the first day of the London Festival of Architecture. This concert will feature the World Premiere of Graeme G StewartÂs Opera-Ballet ÂTales from OvidÂ as well as new works by young Irish composers Solfa Carlile and Jonathan Lee.
ÂTales from OvidÂ explores the world of OvidÂs Metamorphoses, the stories of EarthÂs creation. The performance will include the combined forces of full symphony orchestra, a large chorus, two soloists and a dancer. This glorious and epic work will bring the audience into a new and exciting genre of classical music!
The Orchestra is delighted to be dedicating this concert to the generations of Irish people involved in the building of London, and to be performing in the beautiful Hawksmoor church St GeorgeÂs Bloomsbury. Supported in this event by the Bloomsbury Association and The Irish Post Newspaper, the Orchestra was founded in 2005 to promote classical music of Irish origin.
