The Melodians were invited to play at the Foreign Secretary’s Annual Garden Party on 12th June. They were delighted to accept (even though they were flying out to Belarus the next day) and arrived at Lancaster House for the evening event.
Everything went well and they also met a few celebrities at the event. Here are a few photos from the evening.
Art Night 2019 was a fantastic event. The Melodians performed 3 sets between 5.30pm and 9pm. It was noticeable that the crowd in Pancras Square would increase when our performance was due and each performance gradually got a bigger and more enthusiastic audience. We had to do an encore after the final performance as the audience was so keen!
Here is a video of the first performance of Rasputin.
I hope you all managed to listen to Jeremy Deller on Desert Island Discs today at 11.15. It was a very interesting insight into Jeremy Deller’s life and work. If you weren’t able to listen to it then it is available on-line and will also be repeated on BBC Radio 4 Friday 11th January at 9.00am. Here is a recording of our rehearsal of Hallelujah (which was one of Jeremy’s selections) with Jeremy Deller at the rehearsal with us.
Just to let you know that Jeremy Deller will be on Desert Island Discs, BBC Radio 4, Sunday 6th January at 11.15am. As we have collaborated with Jeremy on 3 different projects we anticipate getting a mention and some of our music may be played (can say no more).
We will all be glued to the radio although the programme will also be available shortly afterwards on-line. It will also be repeated on Friday 11th January at 09.00.
