Bob Stanley and co play film score live; backed by a 90-piece orchestra and choir
The St Etienne film/documentary about London’s Festival Hall, “This Is Tomorrow” is to premiere at the newly revamped Festival Hall on June 29.
The music/film event will see St Etienne play the 75 minute soundtrack live, backed by a 60-piece orchestra and 30-strong choir.
The event is the culmination of the band’s year-long residency at the venue.
John Cameron, whose previous credits include the musical scores for films Kes and Poor Cow, will be conducting on the night.
The film soundtrack contains as the band say on their website, “a bunch of brand new songs, some of which we’re still working on, but those already nailed include ‘Say It To The Rain,’ ‘Miss Trudy Jones,’ ‘Out In The Cold and ‘Magic Mike McCart.”
