Efterklang's Performing Parades project returns for two very special performances this summer. First up, on June 19, is a performance with Metropole Orkest at the Holland Festival in Amsterdam. On August 11 Efterklang team up with the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra for a big open air concert for Stockholms Kulturfestival.
Performing Parades premiered in September 2008 when Efterklang collaborated with The Danish National Chamber Orchestra on a special performance of Efterklang's second album Parades. The album was performed in its entirety at Danish National Radio's new Koncerthuset concert hall. The spectacular performance featuring more than 50 musicians and scenography and costumes by Danish art and design studio Hvass&Hannibal was filmed and recorded. The concert was released as a CD+DVD and 2LP+DVD in October 2009.
In 2009 Efterklang collaborated with the Britten Sinfonia and performed Parades on two occasions in the UK. First at the Fuse Festival in Leeds, and later at a packed Barbican Hall in London in October 2009.
