Audiences can expect an evening packed with epic music from the post-punk powerhouse songs of The Police, to Copeland’s best known film scores including Francis Ford Coppola’s Rumble Fish and Oliver Stone’s Wall Street. From the musical odyssey of Rhythmatist to the Main Theme from The Equalizer with a dash of Spyro the Dragon for good measure. Co-arranged and conducted by musical director Troy Miller (multi-instrumentalist, composer, conductor and Ivor Novello award winning producer, who has worked with an array of artists from Jamie Cullum, Laura Mvula and Gregory Porter, as well as orchestras such as the London Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonia and BBC Concert Orchestras) the performances promise to be a pulsating opportunity to journey through Copeland’s catalogue.
With more than three decades spent at the forefront of contemporary music as a rock star, acclaimed film composer as well in the worlds of opera, ballet, world and chamber music, Stewart Copeland is a multi-talented and crucial figure in the global music scene.
