Leeds shoppers are in for one hell of a surprise this Saturday afternoon, as a symphony of some 100 musicians line Briggate for the city’s biggest ever Busk Queue, between 1pm and 2pm.
The event is being organised as part of the Trinity Leeds Art Programme, which includes permanent art commissions, as well as temporary projects like this one, and which is providing a platform for artists of all sorts to show off their talents.
Buskers, playing a wide variety of instruments, will create a line down the centre of Briggate and play free of charge for passers by.
The event is being arranged by community arts organisation Heads Together of Meltham, in conjunction with internet based radio station East Leeds FM, which it set up in 2003.
The organisers are still on the look out for musicians to take part, and auditions are being held at 6pm tomorrow night, at Holy Trinity Church on Boar Lane in Leeds.Click here for more information…
Heads Together creative director Adrian Sinclair, said: “The Trinity Leeds commission is an opportunity for us to bring some of our creative work into the heart of Leeds. The 100 ‘buskers’ will include local professional musicians, as well as young musicians who have been training with us as part of our Next Generation programme”.
