Newcastle Commuters Join Pianist to Create a Bus Station Sonata

Arts Council_of England - Bus Station Sonata

In a project to help introduce classical music to a wider audience, commuters passing through Newcastle’s Haymarket Bus Station were asked to sit in with pianist, Andy Jackson and contribute a few notes to create a collaborative performance of Beethoven’s moonlight Sonata.

The installation was conceived by Newcastle artist Anton Hecht, and funded by The Arts Council of England and the Tyne and Wear area bus company Nexus.
