The Multi-Story Orchestra: Schumann Symphony No 2

For one night only, The Multi-Story Orchestra takes over the West Handyside Canopy

Wednesday 5th September 2018

Extraordinary performances in unexpected places

Join The Multi-Story Orchestra as they fill West Handyside Canopy with music.

From car parks to schools to rooftops, Multi-Story Orchestra performs just about anywhere you can imagine, creating live classical music experiences like no other.

At this unique event the Orchestra heads to West Handyside Canopy, the covered outdoor space between Central Saint Martins and Waitrose at King’s Cross. Lead by the young and talented conductor Christopher Stark, the Orchestra performs Schumann’s captivating Symphony No 2. Created in 1845-6, this moody piece was written during a time of great personal turmoil for Schumann, but became one of the richest, most compelling pieces he would ever write.

As always, this won’t be a typical recital. The evening starts with musicians mingling and playing amongst the audience before coming together for the full performance.
