MC Mozart's Classical Smackdown
"The refreshing thing about the event is the way it energises classical music in a non-trivial way and without the repertoire having to suffer – all in the hands of skilled, focused musicians who are given room to fool about and explore. Everyone wins." - The Guardian (https://www.theguardian.com/music/2017/jun/19/mc-mozart-classical-smackdown-slam-poetry-music-book-club-shoreditch)
Have you ever settled down to re-watch that classic picture, 8 Mile, and thought “this rap battle lacks classical music”? Of course you have, and so have we.
Join us at the strange and wonderful event of the season: MC Beethoven's Classical Smackdown a classical music battle with old dead white boys, booze and perhaps even a rogue bassoon.
Hosted by the Ghost of Beethoven, two of London's most talented young classical musicians will be invited to perform just 10 minute sets on the torrid themes of: love, despair, anger and joy.
You shall choose the victor of each round, and ultimate impoverished musician who DOMINATES the Smackdown will be offered a bottle of champagne, and a bow from the Ghost himself.
