Surge Orchestra is run by Sid Peacock who is one of the most exciting composers in that difficult-to-define area between jazz, contemporary music and improv. The main vehicle for his work is his self-formed Surge Orchestra, which offers a truly original take on Big Band Jazz. Here is a beautiful track ‘ Chinese Flowers’ I had the privilege of singing and playing violin on this as part of the Surge in Spring festival at Birmingham Mac Centre in 2018.
Here is our video from Surge in Spring 2018 with snippets and interviews with some of the artists that performed. Looking forward to next years festival!
