Symphony No. 2

Stop the world I want to get off! Modern life assaults our senses with an anxiety-inducing barrage of colour and noise, information and distraction. But with brave, bold and brilliant playing the world’s greatest orchestra of teenagers is ready to take it on through music that gives voice to our fears, helps us find hope and brings us together in joyful celebration.

And sometimes nothing works better than laughter to show us the absurdity of our fears. Rick Dior’s Science Fiction collects together a Pandora’s Box of classic sci-fi movie scenes, deposits them safely within the confines of the video screen and ties them up in weird and witty score of percussive beats and bendy electronics that will make you wonder what it was you were so afraid of after all.

Then on to a musical portrait of an iconic moment in history. John Adams’ Dr Atomic Symphony pounds our ears with frantic music that captures the high drama and conflicting emotions experienced by the ‘fathers of the atomic bomb’ in the days leading up to the first bomb test.

And finally, something to restore inner peace. Sibelius described his Second Symphony as a ‘confession of the soul’, and while the music hints at dark thoughts, it’s stirring finale will wrap you in uplifting tunes, leaving you with hope and optimism. And we all need some of that.

Totally teenage orchestral brilliance. Come and hear it.
