The Amazing Tent Company Help to Bring Music to the South West

A musical experience like no other is currently sweeping through Plymouth, Torbay and Cornwall, bringing music lovers together to experience music in a different way.

The Philharmonia Orchestra have joined up with communities throughout the South West to bring you iOrchestra – a free interactive digital music experience aiming to ignite enthusiasm for classical music.

Whether you are young, old, or would rather not say, the iOrchestra experience is set to immerse you deep within the world of classical music.

At the heart of iOrchestra – set under one of our very own DuoSpan tents – is the Philharmonia’s award-winning digital “virtual orchestra” installation called RE-RITE.

RE-RITE is a large-scale walkthrough experience that takes you on an amazing musical journey through a real orchestra. RE-RITE allows you to digitally interact with each section of the orchestra as if you were actually a part of it.

Imagine playing along with an orchestra, standing amongst over 100 professional playing musicians…or even conducting the orchestra yourself!

Well you no longer have to imagine!

As you walk underneath our DuoSpan tent you will be faced with a series of big screen projections. In one area you will see the musicians and in the other the conductors. Then you will be able to take center stage with them both and either perform with the orchestra on real instruments as part of the percussion, or try your hand at conducting.

RE-RITE is currently touring the South West at the following locations, keep an eye out for our fabulous DuoSpan tent and you’ll know you are at the right place.
