Kate Whitley & The Multi-Story Orchestra

The Multi-Story Orchestra
Sarah-Jane Lewis soprano
Fra Rustumji violin
Abel Selaocoe cello
Christopher Stark conductor
Sabrina Mahfouz poet

A concert intertwining spoken word and music about love, exploring the relationship between sound and text through both sung poetry and live readings interspersed with improvised music.

With Ravel’s beautiful song settings of the symbolist ‘Trois Poèmes de Stéphane Mallarmé’ sung by soprano Sarah-Jane Lewis, alongside a new set of love songs written specifically for the event by composer Kate Whitley (‘tremendous… vigorous and visceral music’ Guardian) and poet Sabrina Mahfouz  (‘In quite a different league…She speaks lyrically and powerfully.’ Times).

Curated by co-artistic director of The Multi-Story Orchestra, which can be usually found performing in car parks around the UK (‘the response was ecstatic, and it deserved to be’ New York Times), the performances include readings from Sabrina and other poets alongside improvised musical responses from Multi-Story musicians cellist Abel Selacoe and violinist Fra Rustumji.
