Last Night of the Proms

Rushden Town Band
Adele Hudson conductor 
Maureen Brathwaite soloist 

Oundle International Festival’s Music in Special Places series joins forces with Oundle School Music Department to celebrate one of the great British institutions, the Last Night of the Proms.

Our concert is a warm up for the relay from the Royal Albert Hall and our early start will give you plenty of time to get home to watch it live! Featuring the perennial favourites, soloist Maureen Brathwaite will lead the singing of Jerusalem, I Vow to Thee My Country and, of course, Land of Hope and Glory.

Head of Brass, Adele Hudson, directs Rushden Town Band who are about to be promoted to the Championship Section which contains the very best brass bands in the UK. A concert which celebrates the great British music tradition and an evening not to be missed!

The performance begins at 6pm and will finish in time for you to catch the Last Night of the Proms on BBC!

£10 adult / £4 u18 (unreserved seating, ground floor or balcony).

The FB Pocket Orchestra
Blues, Ragtime, Hot Jazz, Songs and Dances from long ago

 

Working backwards from the 1930s, The FB Pocket Orchestra explores repertoire that formed the embryo of what is now known as popular music.

The members originally began playing together simply as an exercise in exploring heritage repertoire, taking on a few informal performances and recording dates as schedules allowed. The FBPO became an 'official' project in the spring of 2012 and released its first album in October.

Making a welcome return to MISP, the orchestra presents a contemporary slant on popular acoustic music from the late 19th and early 20th Centuries.

"Atmospheric, yet vibrant, this charming collection of songs will make you wish you had been born some 100 years ago. The style, glamour and ‘fabulousness’ of this era is captured beautifully on the album."
Claire Anderson Jazz FM

Re-inventors of global sounds, rewriters of rulebooks and winners of the Royal Over-Seas League Competition 2017, Kabantu (previously Project Jam Sandwich) is a five-piece band hailing from Manchester who unravel new marriages of music from around the globe to celebrate the space where different cultures meet. Vocal harmonies from South Africa coalesce with everything from Celtic reels to Brazilian samba and beyond. They have performed all over the UK including the BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall, BBC Free Thinking Festival at Sage Gateshead, BBC Radio 3 In Tune, Bridgewater Hall, Celtic Connections and Cambridge Folk Festival. Their Oundle International Festival performance in Elton in 2016 was a sell out, so we recommend you book your seat as soon as you can for this highly entertaining evening.
