Energetic Bongo Fury in concert at Cathedral

Internationally renowned musicians O Duo will bring their unique and energetic percussion performance to Derby Cathedral for the first time on February 10 as part of the Twilights concert series.

Oliver Cox and Owen Gunnell will perform a special one-hour concert starting at 6pm entitled Bongo Fury.

The programme is an eclectic collection of classical and contemporary music
re-arranged for percussion as well as their own compositions, using a variety of different instruments from the lyrical marimba and glockenspiel to a vibraphone and a selection of drums.

The concert has been curated by East Midlands orchestra Sinfonia Viva and Derby Cathedral as part of the Twilights series of drive-time and evening concerts, which is a key element in the Cathedral’s two-year cultural audience development programme.

Owen said they were both relishing the chance to return to Derby.

“We have a great relationship with Sinfonia Viva and my brother is a percussion player with the orchestra. He is always telling him how great the real ale is in Derby – so we are looking forward to the post-concert get together.

Tickets are from £6 and are available from vivaorch.co.uk; 0333 666 3366 or in person from the DerbyLIVE box office in the Market Place.
