ORCHESTRA OF SPHERES’ CHILDREN’S SHOW!

March 20th, 2015

Hooray for child-friendly psychedelia! The always awesome Orchestra of Spheres have teamed up with Erica Sklenars (aka Lady Lazer Light), Stephen Bain and Gerard Crewdson to create a show for the Capital E National Arts Festival in Wellington!

“The sky is not even the limit in this compelling musical expedition, set in a visually vibrant and kinetic world. Inflatable installations and beautiful projections contribute to an immersive kaleidoscopic light and music experience, pushing the boundaries of imagination on a voyage to the furthest reaches of space.”

Make a booking for the one public show on Saturday morning (March 21) here > http://capitale.org.nz/portfolio-posts/national-arts-festival-orchestra-of-spheres/
