Parades Concert Diary #1 – 9th September

September 11, 2008 by Barnabas

Hi All

As some of you already know, we’re preparing the biggest Efterklang concert event ever these days.

On Friday, September 26th We’ll be performing our latest album, Parades, from start to finish in two concerts on the same night. We will be joined on stage by The Danish National Chamber Orchestra (DR UnderholdningsOrkestret). We’ll be over 50 musicians on stage in what looks to be an amazing scenography by the wonderful Hvass&Hannibal It will all take place in the newly build Koncerthuset, Studie 2 in DR Byen (National Radio & TV broadcast center), Copenhagen!

The last couple of days we had the first rehearsals with the orchestra. It was the two best days we’ve had in a long time. It is such an amazing feeling and beyond words to hear our little baby Parades unfolding itself in a full blown live orchestra!!!

We’ll try to do a little photo/text update about the whole project up until September 26th. This is the first one, more to come…

The first day with the Orchestra:

The concert hall (Studie 2), where the Parades concert will take place. It’ll all look very different by then though…

This is Karsten Fundal (left), the musical score arranger of the concert and Erik Heide, the concert maestro (first violinist of the orchestra. We’ll play without a conductor, so Erik will be in charge of the orchestra

Today was a rehearsal only with the leaders of each instrument group

Ralf Christensen behind the camera. Ralf will be doing a documentary about the whole thing
