iOrchestra Volunteer 2015

We need you!
We are seeking fantastic volunteers to help make the second year of iOrchestra bigger and better than the first! We need you to get involved and bring your skills and experience to help make Universe of Sound come to life.  We see this as a two-way partnership: for us, we are seeking people in and from the regions in which we are working.  We are offering the chance to work with music, education, production, and event-management professionals.  We have created a programme of training and support which will enable your role in iOrchestra to be part of a wider and longer-term cultural development: for you and for your community.

Universe of Sound
At the heart of iOrchestra are the Philharmonia Orchestra's award-winning digital ‘virtual orchestra’ installations. Building on the success of its predecessor RE-RITE, in 2014, this year Universe of Sound takes apart and brings to life The Planets by Gustav Holst.  Almost 100 years after it was first performed, Universe of Sound enables audiences to see and hear one of the best loved and most influential pieces of 20th Century orchestral music in new and exciting ways.  The Planets is a musical tour through our solar system, employing myth and mysticism, and spawning hymn-tunes and inspiring film scores.

Universe of Sound is a large-scale walk-through experience that offers visitors the chance to step inside an orchestra, to feel the sensation of being among more than 100 expert musicians and experience the thrill of walking amongst them, via giant projections, surround sound and interactive stations dotted throughout the installation. Admission is free of charge.

Universe of Sound will be coming to:

  • Armada Way, Plymouth 27 April - 9 May (10.00am – 6.00pm);
  • Torre Abbey Meadows, Torquay 25 May - 6 June (10.00am – 6.00pm);
  • Lemon Quay, Truro 29 June - 11 July (10.00am – 6.00pm).

We are seeking volunteers in each location to work on iOrchestra to support the public in exploring Universe of Sound. Whether you can give a few hours or several days, we want to hear from you – get involved and help us bring high quality classical music alive across the South West!

Closing date: 10 May 2015, 00:00
