LAO present five world premieres in the magnificent Duke's Hall at the Royal Academy of Music on the 16th April at 7pm (free admission).
The orchestra have been working with Academy composers to develop five new pieces for accordion orchestra. They will also play two pieces from their album Flight - 'Rhapsody' by Stuart Hancock and 'Peace' by Ian Watson. The new pieces range from a Lullaby, based on traditional scottish bagpipe music, to a deconstruction of Astor Piazzolla's 'Oblivion'.
Admission is free (unreserved seating), there will be no interval and the concert will finish at around 8pm.
LAO roving reporter, Sam Cullen, looks back at our sparkling Union Chapel concert. It's an action packed episode with live clips and interviews, including a chat with guest star Dillie Keane.
