    Music Under Siege - Shostakovich's 7th performed beneath Concorde - Resonance
    Frederick Platt, Resonance Orchestra
    Aerospace Bristol Bristol BS34 5BZ
    United Kingdom

    With 100 performers under the wings of Concorde, this will be a spectacle for both eyes and ears!

    Join us on an epic journey through the hardship, resilience and drama of the Leningrad siege, all encapsulated in music and in an extraordinary setting.

    "The only thing we feared was that the Germans would start bombing us. I was thinking, 'God, let us listen to it to the end.' Everyone was starving, but they were all dressed up in bow ties."

    At Resonance, we want to bring monumental music of monumental scale to Bristol's best spaces, and we want to share that music with the community. By going beyond the concert hall and keeping tickets affordable, we want everybody to feel welcome.

    Whatever music you like, you will love this intense and powerful symphony, written from within the besieged city of Leningrad.

    Dmitry Shostakovich (1906-1975)
