Centre Stage visits Barrow with “Travelling by Tuba”

BUSCA has a new Centre Stage performance for you on Friday November 25th. Chris Cranham (Tuba) and Stewart Death (Piano) are a unique duo who perform stunning innovative shows, definitely not just a tuba recital. With a great array of wind and brass instruments they are irrepressible entertainers who communicate with their audiences to provide a brilliant evening’s entertainment.

The show is a multi-instrumental extravaganza featuring instruments from all over of the world; imagine the gladiatorial Roman Cornu and a Swiss Alpine Horn - the original mobile phone - all transported to your hall. Admire the craftsmanship of the beautiful Chinese Dragon-Headed Trumpet and a pair of 6 foot high Tibetan Dungs. Contrast these with the mellow sounding Ocarina and the blaring Turkish Schnib. Marvel at the Cimbasso, Verdi's Tuba with the bell going forward.

You will hear music from classical to jazz, a Can-Can dancing tubist, exploding tuba and impossible as it sounds, watch out for the opera Carmen in four and a half minutes - all will be revealed!! What's more, music is not everything. Hilarious anecdotes and informative chat also combine to give an unforgettable performance with something for everyone. The show will be at Humphrey Perkins Community Centre, Cotes Road starting at 7.30 on Friday 25th November. Tickets cost £11 (£10 pre-booked), £10 (concessions) (£9 pre-booked) and children under 16 £6 (£5 pre-booked). They can be bought from the Paper Shop, High St, Barrow, the box office on 07718 153117 or by Paypal from www.busca.org.uk
