As a Curtain-Raiser for the International Agatha Christie Festival coming to Torbay 12-15 September 2019, Hugh Nankivell introduces The Aubergines Family Orchestra and Trio of Men for an Agatha Christie-themed musical treat.
The Aubergines are the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra’s Family Orchestra in collaboration with Exeter University. Trio of Men are creative municipal song-makers from South Devon and were the musicians in residence for the International Agatha Christie Festival in 2016.
Sunday 9 June, 4pm The Aubergines Family Orchestra led by Hugh Nankivell and Emma Welton have been exploring Agatha Christie’s ’13 Problems’ in music and are making a collection of musical problems for an audience to solve. These will include new songs, conducting and a wonderful array of instruments and sounds. Trio Of Men (Steve Sowden, Ben Ballard and Hugh Nankivell) make instant songs using any ideas and all ideas, and will create new songs on the day alongside other Agatha related songs from their illustrious back-catalogue.
