Undercover Orchestra

This is an example of the Cobweb Orchestra helping to make Classical music more accessible to the public, created by the artist Anton Hecht. We won an Epic Award for innovation for our ‘flash mob’ rendition of Ravel’s ‘Bolero’, arranged by Andy Jackson. It was made possible with the support of Newcastle City Council, Nexus and Eldon Square Shopping Centre. This film of the event was viewed more than 30,000 times in the first week alone!

Undercover Opera

Here is our second ‘flash mob’ by Anton Hecht, featuring players from the Cobweb Orchestra and some of the Silver Singers from the Sage. It was filmed at Grainger Market in Newcastle.

Morphing Music

This was another work by Anton Hecht, with music by Andy Jackson, and 100 players, both professional and amateur, including Cobwebbers. It was commissioned by Gateshead Council and was performed in various locations in Gateshead.


Samples of music from our CDs coming soon!
