Guerilla Orchestra Reinvents The Idea Of A Concert
A European music group holds spontaneous performances in public spaces.
Spira Mirabilis is a European music orchestra that seeks to reinvent the idea of a concert by performing spontaneously in public areas. Founded by Italian violinist Timoti Fregni, the group is composed of young musicians who wanted a creative outlet where they could do something new and challenging. The orchestra plays without a conductor and use collective thinking by each member to come out with a musical score.
Spira Mirabilis has performed in various European towns by initially attracting enough public interest with their spontaneous performances on boat backs, supermarkets and public squares. Each performance begins with the group’s players generously interacting with the audience, before they play at the final concerts. They will perform at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London tomorrow.
