About

Alvin Curran's Maritime Rites is a sound spectacular set out on the Thames, the north front of Tate and the Millennium Bridge. It will be played by Curran himself with free musicians Evan Parker (sax) Melvyn Poore (tuba) and Anton Lukoszevieze (cello), the brass section of the London Symphony Orchestra, the UBS Orchestra and over a hundred volunteer musicians. This unique performance will take place on a barge on the Thames, The Millennium Bridge and on the banks of Tate Modern. Creating a rich collage of sounds associated with the river, drawing deep into the history of the Thames and its place in London. The performance closes with the bells of St Paul's playing a carillon specially designed by Curran.

Tate Modern is asking musicians to volunteer and take part in the performance on Friday 14 September. For more information about taking part, please contact cleuci.deoliveira@tate.org.uk
