RITE UP CLOSE
On Sunday 28 February the Janus Ensemble were invited to perform The Rite of Spring as part of the Rite Up Close outreach project. Over one hundred of our musicians collaborated under the baton of Tom Seligman.
The afternoon event began with a workshop, breaking down different elements found in Stravinsky's music. During the performance that followed, audience members were invited to sit in among the orchestra, within touching distance of the players.
The event was as valuable an experience to our players as to the audience, and we much enjoyed collaborating with newly formed charity, Five Senses Music.
