Event details

A Bigger Show uses the image of the fairground to examine, with irony, humour and high drama, the lot of humankind in the age of the World Wide Web

Mike’s score for his 22-piece ensemble involves voices, acoustic brass and saxophones, electronics and double rhythm section.

Vocalists Kate Westbrook, Martine Waltier and Billy Bottle are joined by an impressive array of musicians from the worlds of Jazz, Classical, Pop and Rock Music in a new kind of Big Band…The Uncommon Orchestra.
