Wishes, Lies and Dreams in Peckham

The Trosp Orchestra
Composer Kate Whitley is back with another one of her pop-up events in Peckham. Wishes, Lies and Dreams is a new work by Kate Whitley for children's choir and orchestra. It will be performed by a choir of 160 primary school children (from John Donne, Bellenden, Peckham Park and Kender schools) and John Donne Community Choir conducted by Christopher Stark in Peckham Rye multi-storey car-park on Saturday 6 July at 7.30pm. 

This isn't the first time that Kate Whitley has been involved in a project at the Peckham Rye car park. In 2011 she founded The Orchestra Project (TROSP) which brought a symphony orchestra to the disused multi-storey car park in Peckham to perform Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring to an audience of more than 1,500. Last year the orchestra toured schools in Peckham, playing to more than 1,000 children in one day, and returned to the car park to perform John Adam's gigantic Harmonielehre. The TROSP Orchestra will be joining in the fun on July 6. Entrance is free, but you need to reserve a ticket. Further information from the event's Facebook page and reserve a ticket at the Eventbrite page.
