Symphony of Waves premieres on Remembrance Sunday in Folkestone

Symphony of Waves is a new piece by the Pandemonium Drummers for Pages of the Sea in Folkestone to coincide with the 100 year anniversary of armistice and the end of the First World War.

Premiere of Symphony of Waves:
Remembrance Sunday, 11th November 2018, at Folkestone Harbour Arm at 1.30pm & 2.30pm.

Presented by over 40 drummers, the semi-improvised piece will explore the concern, anxiety, and commitment of those who left home and started a journey across the sea, from which many did not return.

The 14-minute piece is performed on simple buckets and bins and will evoke memories of a pleasant land left behind and outlooks of an uncertain future.

Symphony of Waves will be released as a community resource in 2019 to invite performances by other groups.

About the Pandemonium Drummers

They have performed over 250 times since in a wide variety of settings from major stadium sports ceremonies to arts festivals and community events.

ABOUTPandemonium Drummers

The Pandemonium Drummers were originally put together by London 2012 Ceremonies for the Pandemonium segment of Danny Boyle's spectacular Olympic Opening Ceremony. Following the Ceremony, the volunteer drummers kept on performing at a variety of events.

Based on their extensive training, they performed at other Opening Ceremonies, including the UEFA Champions League Final 2013, the FA Cup Final 2014, and the Heineken Cup Final 2014, and at a variety of large and small festivals as well as sports and community events. The Pandemonium Drummers are a returning act in London's major parades, including the London New Years' Day Parade, St Patrick's Day Parade, and the Lord Mayor's Show, and they coined Cheer Drumming, supporting runners at major sports events across the capital and beyond. The Pandemonium Drummers have supported the Special Olympics, the Teenage Cancer Trust, and a wide range of other charities.

The Pandemonium Drummers are a constituted association with charitable aims, and are working on a non-profit basis as volunteers.
