Chris Cranham and Stewart Death are a unique duo performing stunning and innovative shows. With an innumerable array of Wind and Brass instruments they undertook over 200 performances last year.

Create A Concert in a Day

Workshops For Schools

These ‘Concerts in a Day’ are an ideal opportunity to improve children’s self esteem and to work closely together as a team. While giving them the chance to work closely with professional musicians learning different music from around the world, it is a never to be forgotten experience. It gives parents a chance to see what the children have been learning promoting the home/school link. The day begins with a whole school show (60 min) followed by 3 x 45 min workshops each with groups of up to 45 children. Each workshop prepares a different piece of music from around the world that is performed by the children in the final 30 min presentation. Themes include Salsa, Samba, Tango, Tone Chimes
