CLASSICAL REVOLUTION @ The Green Carnation
aaamusic | On 01, Apr 2012
Classical Revolution, the new worldwide grassroots classical music experience, arrived in Soho on Tuesday night. It began in San Francisco six years ago and has since spread to over 25 cities worldwide.
It brings classical music out of the symphonic halls and into a popular local club venue, where you can chat with the performers over a beer and enjoy informal jam sessions with great singers and instrumental performers.
The debut concerts in Soho were by cellist Richard Harwood (EMI Classics), the Busch Ensemble (winners of the 2012 Royal Overseas League competition), legendary ‘Baroque-and-roll’ band The Frolick and violinist David Worswick of the London Symphony Orchestra.
Classical Revolution is not for profit. It unites music experts and those with a newly found interest so that they can share musical excellence and brilliant performances.
This is a fresh and informal and way to see quality, professional classical music and discover its diversity. There are also fine introductions, comfy, relaxing sofas and the opportunity to have a chat with some of the players later on. I’d recommend a look at this completely different, friendly and approachable way to get more people listening to classical music.
Classical Revolution is @ The Green Carnation at 7pm on Tuesday 24th April, 2012
