Revolution

SoundLINCS’ Revolution event held in June 2008 was a celebration of the charity’s 10th anniversary and brought together musicians of all abilities, ages and genres for a mass performance in the picturesque grounds of Lincoln Castle.

Over 1600 people turned out to herald the special milestone and they were treated to a morning of open workshops followed by a spectacular performance of an excellent improvised piece, also named ‘Revolution’, which drew upon riffs composed by Music Facilitators from the soundLINCS team.  It was performed by a diverse ensemble of around 100 musicians designed to showcase the inclusivity of community music making, which included:

Revolution PR 5

  • 11 guitarists
  • 7 drummers
  • 20 singers
  • 4 bass players
  • 2 pianists
  • 3 brass and woodwind players
  • 18 string instrumentalists
  • Samba and African Drumming groups.

The ensemble also gave performances of Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and ‘Happy Birthday’ by Stevie Wonder to celebrate the occasion. The event reached its finale with a spectacular display of flags, fireworks and fountains; as well as a slice of birthday cake each for the audience and musicians!
