//// NEW SEASON OF MONTHLY CLUB NIGHTS @ THE SHACKLEWELL ARMS BEGINS 9/1/14 WITH A FREE ENTRY BATTLE OF THE BANDS ////
We're starting 2014 by moving our Monthly Club to a new venue The Shacklewell Arms in Dalston.
For the first club night of the year we're inviting submissions for entry to take part in our infamous BATTLE OF THE BANDS competition ...
Are you the next big thing in contemporary classical music? Forget all the embarrassing, ritualised humiliation of televised talent contests - Nonclassical's very own Battle of The bands presents the cutting edge of what is happening now in the classical world.
We've held the competition for five years now, with previous winners having even gone on to make excellent albums on Nonclassical Recordings, while both runners up and winners have gained exposure through performing at our events.
It's always one of our favourite nights, representing the full, diverse spectrum of contemporary music-making in London, from classically-inspired improvisation to live electronics, groups incorporating spoken word and extended vocal techniques, as well as more familiar groupings showcasing new work by emerging composers.
Information for Entrants This is a fantastic opportunity to perform at one of the UK’s leading alternative classical nights, and get involved in the scene: we are seeking to support the best in fresh young talent. It is an open contest for contemporary classical music groups, and instrumentation is limited only by your imagination. Any combination of acoustic and electronic instruments will be considered.
