About The Multi-Story Orchestra
The Multi-Story Orchestra presents extraordinary performances in unexpected settings. From car parks to schools and festivals, they create amazing live classical music experiences performed by incredible musicians.
Winners of a 2016 Royal Philharmonic Society award, the Orchestra has been celebrated as one of the most exciting ensembles to emerge in recent years, and their 2016 BBC Proms debutperformance was widely critically acclaimed:
"joyous and expert music-making" ***** The Times.
The Orchestra was started by composer Kate Whitley and conductor Christopher Stark. They have worked with their major partner Bold Tendencies since 2011, performing at Bold Tendencies' home in Peckham on the disused top four floors of the municipal car park. The Orchestra performs orchestral and chamber concerts across the summer as well as running workshops and performing with local schools and community groups in Peckham:
"anyone who doubts the value of music education should get themselves down to this concrete jungle
and watch its effects in action" The Telegraph.
Beyond London, the Orchestra is currently working with Aldeburgh Music in Ipswich and in Birmingham with Town Hall Symphony Hall, and is supported by The Paul Hamlyn Foundation in expanding their work around the UK:
"they play heroically, they play loudly, and they'll play anything…The response was ecstatic, and it deserved to be" The New York Times.
