Orchestral Evolution: Revolutionary Pop-up Orchestra

Orchestral Evolution was an original Hub project and brand new commissioned score for a revolutionary ‘pop up orchestra’, that welcomed all instruments and all abilities. The score was created by renowned boundary breaking composer, Hub Partner and guitarist Chris Woods (Chris Woods Groove Orchestra)

Students from every type of school ensemble traditional or contemporary, from orchestras to jazz bands, an after school ukulele club to the in house rock band were invited to learn the piece with Chris and a visiting member of the Chris Woods Groove Orchestra.

Students from Leaf Studio, The Bourne Academy, Corfe Hills, Parkstone Grammar and Talbot Heath School took part in the in-school workshops.

All of the participants were then invited to join a mass pop up orchestra, hosted by the Bourne Academy, to perform alongside some of this country’s finest players as part of ‘The Chris Woods Groove Orchestra’ at a one off inspirational concert on the 15th March 2018
