Trans-Atlantic Recognition

Our spontaneous greatness seems to have been noticed on the other side of the pond.

This time we seem to have made an appearance in a Californian article on spontaneous music making in the community for our performance of Ravel’s Bolero in the Nexus bus station in Eldon Square, Newcastle.  Well done to everyone who took part for getting us Trans-Atlantic recognition.

In a similar vein you might also find this article on the npr music blog ‘Deceptive Cadence’ interesting:

Happy reading for these chilly days
