what is rhapsody
Rhapsody is Live Music's annual show, taking place in the Shaw Theatre on Euston Road. Rhapsody features arrangements of popular songs in ways you have never heard them before, which are then musically directed, produced and performed by our society, and this year we aim to use around 100 musicians, from choirs to brass to drummers (and a vibraphone player!) Rhapsody 2019 will have not only large numbers, but small chamber groups in between each number. The ideal large scale Rhapsody arrangement is one that is not achievable in a normal setting - ie with your average band. For this reason, many of our numbers encompass large choirs or the inclusion of classical instruments into a classic band set-up, not only making the pieces more impressive on stage, but also allowing the mixing of individuals from different musical backgrounds.
