Musicians sought for Olympic event
NOT only is the Olympic torch set to pass through Cumbernauld on June 13 next year, but the local area also has the chance to be involved in a major cultural event to mark the closing of the Games.
Non-profit organisation Superact is organising a Bandstand Marathon - 500 simultaneous concerts as part of the Cultural Olympiad.
These will take place on September 9 next year, and the group is calling for choirs, bands and music groups to get involved.
Katharine Lane of Superact added: “This really is a unique opportunity for musicians in Cumbernauld to be part of a major national music event and create a musical legacy post-London 2012. Superact can offer bands a fee to take part plus support with planning and publicity – all of which is invaluable for them in the future”.
