Changing Trax – Electric Proms
Nov 1, 7pm
Changing Trax – Electric Proms presents 12 of Coventry’s finest young emerging artists in an evening of unique performances. The artists will perform their own tracks to a backdrop of a 30 piece orchestra and 200 strong youth choir, courtesy of critically acclaimed Armonico Consort.
Former BBC Proms Young Composer of the Year, Toby Young has re-worked each piece collaboratively with the artists for this showcase. Having formerly worked with the likes of Chase & Status, Duran Duran, The Rolling Stones and Ellie Gouldin, Young turns his hand to working on pieces which started in makeshift studios and youth clubs across Coventry.
Supported by the Coventry City of Culture Trust, the organisation behind Coventry’s bid to be UK City of Culture in 2021, the young people performing are all current participants or alumni from the Positive Youth Foundation and its Youth Music funded programme Changing Trax. All profits from ticket sales will be directed straight into legacy programmes; encouraging a new generation of youth creatives.
These exclusive collaborations will be conducted by Armonico Consort’s Artistic Director Christopher Monks. The show is billed to be an eclectic mix of musical genres including HipHop, Soul and Pop. The evening will be punctuated with dance, short films and achievements of PYF and its beneficiaries.
