This event is free and not ticketed. We recommend arriving 15 minutes before the start time.

The Anatomy of the Orchestra will turn Colston Hall’s foyer inside out, as a total of fifty-one musicians – directed by the critically acclaimed Charles Hazlewoodand drawn from Army of Generals and The British Paraorchestra – will be spread across the four levels of the atrium to play The Four Sections, a rare work for symphony orchestra by the highly influential American composer Steve Reich.

Join us for this unique occurrence and walk amongst the orchestra as it plays, creating your own sonic mix from each section. You can move between floors, walk towards the trombones, stand behind the oboes, wander between the double basses, or just fix yourself in one position and let the music flood your eardrums.
