LOVE Orchestra to Tour China in October

After our Shanghai success in April this year we are going back to China for a three week tour of family concerts in Bejing, Chongqing and Chengdu.

The A.S:K and Vertical productions write this: “Amongst the top-class production we invited, Awake Love Orchestra proved to be a hit this year from April 18th to May 9th, with 24 full house performances. Besides, the art exchange with the first-class Chinese Kun opera artists was also an extraordinary and influential experience. As a meaningful trial of cultural communication, Awake Love Orchestra adapted and performed a special song of a household Chinese ancient poem with a Chinese traditional opera melody, which impressed the local audience that much. The three weeks’ tour with 24 performances as well as 6 workshops attracted nearly 4000.”

A big thank you from ALO

We had a great time playing at The North Wall last week, thank you all for coming! LOVE!

“The Love Orchestra offers a unique experience combining folk, choral, gypsy, pop and classical music whilst performing with a powerful interconnectedness, offbeat humour and a rare sweetness that is mesmerising, entrancing and transforming. They work with cello, guitars, keyboard and a range of percussion but it is their voices with their harmonies and an extraordinary vocal range that draws you in and never lets you go.” – Robert Wilson
