The Fantasy Orchestra present 'F-Rated', celebrating Women in music.
Prepare yourself for an evening of the fantastic and the feminist. The most sublime tribute to some of the top women in music from the twentieth and twenty-first century, including compositions by Anna Meredith, Dame Ethel Smyth, Zintombi Zesi Manje Manje, Connie Converse, The Roches, Rita Lynch and many more.
The Fantasy Orchestra is a community choir and orchestra based in Bristol and Paris with an open-to-all policy. Their motto is "more is more" which reflects their attitude to music, fancy dress and members. They guarantee a show like you've never seen before, often featuring 40+ musicians in full fancy dress regalia. Plus many honoured very special guests from the international F-Rated community!
The evening will also feature a performance and collaboration from The Stroud Fringe choir - a collective based in Stroud made up of established entities from the music/art scene. They create and perform mostly our own material members include Emily Barker, Blythe Pepino, Emily Hall, Misha Law and Ann-Margreth Bohl.
