2017 London Palladium Rehearsals Part 2
We re-visit group rehearsals in Southend-on-Sea as the Music Man Project prepares for its return to the London Palladium this coming autumn. In this second instalment, we hear from students as they practice a range of popular favourites from their recently released ‘Music Man Project Songbook.’
Concerto for Trumpet, Trombone and 1000 Triangles
The Music Man Project perform a new composition “Concerto for Trumpet, Trombone and 1000 Triangles” ahead of their world record attempt later this year. On October 15th, The Music Man Project will attempt a Guinness World Record for the largest ever triangle ensemble at the world-famous London Palladium theatre.
The Marathon Man
On Sunday 24th April 2016, Marc McOwens set out to complete the London Marathon – his fourth marathon run in 21 days. Raising money for Southend Mencap, Marc tackled gruelling conditions in Paris, Manchester and Boston before arriving to greet The Music Man Project a mile from the London finish line.
The Music Man
Southend Mencap Music School is a weekly provision enabling people with learning disabilities to socialise, perform and develop musical skills within a safe and welcoming environment. This acclaimed 60-minute documentary follows the school during 2012, as it prepares to expand further afield as the ‘Music Man Project’.
