“Events Dear Boy. Events!” Brixton Chamber Orchestra Unites Cellist With Chaucer ~ & ~ Spreads The Gift of Music Even Further ~ December 2021 ~

Brixton Chamber Orchestra Strives To Bring Music To The People With Free “Pavement Performances” In Public Places.
This Was Exemplified By Their Summer Estates Tour July Through To The Beginning of August Earlier This Year.

Early November They Held Their First Fundraiser Event Which Was At Brixton Private Members Club, ‘Upstairs’ At The Department Store. The Orchestra Is Dynamic, Diverse, Versatile And Flexible And On This Occassion It Was An Indoor Event Featurin’ Great Live Orchestral Music Performed By Members of The Local Community. And Mid November They Staged A Magical Orchestral Music Trail Which Was A Musical Treasure Hunt With A Grand Finale At A Secret Location. See Video Extract Below From The Night, Featurin’ Founder, Director And Conductor Matthew O’Keeffe.

The Good Spirited, Kind Hearted, And Warmly Inclusive BCO Gives The Gift of Music All Year Round

In December They Are Tourin’ Again, This Time With A 10 Day ‘Christmas Estates Tour’ To Officially Ring In The Festive Season. It Will Run From Thursday December 9 To Sunday December 19 2021. There 14 Free Performances Makin’ It Their Biggest Tour of The Kind. Marketin’ Director Silas Armstrong Said “BCO Is A Registered Charity And Relies On Donations To Keep Performances Free For The Community.”

The ‘Estate’ Tours Literally Involve The Orchestra Arrivin’ On ‘Estates’ or Nearby Public Spaces And Performin’ Pieces of Classical Music. Community Centres, Church Halls, Public Parks, Public Squares, And Recreational Centres Are Typical. As Well As Brixton Itself Other Areas Covered Include Lambeth (Lambeth Towers Near The Imperial War Museum), Stockwell, And Tulse Hill. This Is A Collaborative Classical Orchestra Keen To Integrate Into The Community And As Such Its USP Is That It Also Embraces Various Other Musical Genres Combinin’ Classical of Course With Christmas Tunes, Disco, Jazz, Ska, Rock n’ Roll And Grime. It Also Hosts Different Vocalists From Time To Time (See Pictures & Video Below).

“To The Pianist On Chaucer Road, I Am A Cellist Who Lives On Spenser Road And I Get To Hear Your Lovely Playing Through My Window. Would You Like To Play Together Sometime? If So Please Call Me On (Phone Number Provided) Best, Zeke

A Message left by charmed cellist zeke

If Music Be The Food of Love…

As Well As BCO Founder Matthew O’Keeffe Devisin’ A Game of Magical Mystery Trails, Marketin’ Director Silas Delved Into The Game of Love And Matchmakin’ When He Saw The Message Above Left Locally From One Neighbour To Another, Whilst He Was Postin’ Leaflets For The Orchestra’s Summer Estates Tour. He Felt He Just Had To Do A Shout Out For A Musical Couple Who Were So Near Yet So Far.

He Recently Told TheOrator.Press “I Saw It And Said I Must Post It And Connect The Dots.”

So He Posted It On Instagram In The Summer (July 16 2021). “Within 24 Hours A Street Team of Detectives Developed And We Introduced Them To Each Other. We’ve Also Told Them That If They Ever Want To Play With Us They Are Most Welcome. We Are Not Sure At The Moment But They May Even Be Joinin’ Us For Our ‘Christmas‘ Estates Tour.” Ahh! The BCO, Unitin’ Music Lovers!

The BCO Music Trail Clues Are Finally Revealed In A Video Reel Put Together By BCO Marketin’ Director Silas. He Told Us He Fell In Love With The Orchestra After Hearin’ Them Perform In Public Just After The Lockdown Lift In July 2020. And He Was So Moved To Tears That He Offered His Services As He Just Wanted To Get Involved With Their Community Work.
The Ever Passionate O’Keeffe Keen To Share His Love of Music With the Community Appeared On BBC Radio’s ‘The Scene’ Talkin’ With @JaxxSteps About A New Magical Mystery Music Trail He’s Designed For Music Lovers. We’d Liken It To An Easter Egg Hunt But Not At Easter And With No Easter Eggs. Maybe Click The Video And Listen To Him Describe It Himself Instead.

Brixton Recreation Centre Was The Prize Location For Winners of The BCO Music Trail. Ingenious Sparkly Repurposing of A Goal Post Was Very Timely As It Brought To Mind A Manger On Sat 20 November. This Rather Serious And Atmospheric Piece of Music Is Entirely Different To The First Piece Which Was Light, Joyous And Upliftin’.
This Contrast Highlights The Maturity, Versatility & Beauty of The Orchestra.
Hands Down Matthew O’Keeffe Is The Most Rhythmic, Enthusiastic & Animated Orchestral Conductor We Have Ever Seen. Present At The BCO’s First Ever Fundraiser On Thursday November 4 2021 We Were Entirely Enthralled By His Conductin’ As Well As His Orchestra, Which He Founded In 2018.
