Sinfonia Viva and Déda join forces in a performance of The Rite of Spring, a work that famously broke the mould in both music and choreography, and still thrills audiences nearly 100 years on. Composer of Invocation and multi-instrumentalist Tunde Jegede is equally at home on the worlds of Western classical, African and pop music.
Invocation will be a Countdown event for the London 2012 Festival, the finale of the Cultural Olympiad. The festival will be a 12-week UK-wide cultural celebration from 21 June 2012 bringing leading artists from all over the world together to celebrate the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games through dance, music, theatre, the visual arts, film and digital innovation.
Supported by Derby City Council, Orchestras Live, PRS for Music Foundation, Derby LIVE, Déda and Sinfonia Viva. Supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Invocation has been co-commissioned by Orchestras Live and Sinfonia Viva who are joint producers of the overall project in association with Derby LIVE.
