After the city-wide processional extravaganza that was last November's Sound Relay, the a.P.A.t.T. Orchestra return with the first in a 4-part concert series - Musical Settings - that will see them explore different environments, both physical and musical.
Musical Settings Part 1: On the Earth, finds the orchestra in the bubble within a bubble that is Sefton Park - a landscaped slice of rurality within the constructed urbanity of the city of Liverpool. The programmed music deals with themes of simplification and distance from the chaos of modern life.

However, that doesn't stop them from needing a little extra support and so that have launched their own giving site on Indiegogo.
