Cheltenham Music Festival World Premiere

Loose Tubes flautist and composer Eddie Parker holds a life-long passion for the music of Claude Debussy. To celebrate the composer in his centenary year, Eddie has brought together a unique new ensemble of twelve outstanding jazz and classical performers, with the vocal virtuosity of singers Brigitte Beraha and James Gilchrist at centre stage. Eddie and the group have created a repertoire which takes Debussy’s music as a starting point and leads us on a fascinating journey.

Eddie gratefully acknowledges the assistance of Cheltenham Music Festival, Hawkwood House and Arts Council England


Parabola Arts Centre, Cheltenham Ladies' College

Parabola Arts Centre is located in a Grade II listed building in the glamorous Montpellier district of Cheltenham. The centre was built as a facility for students of Cheltenham Ladies’ College and to be used as a public arts centre by the local community.

The original, listed Bayshill House was transformed into a gallery, bar and foyer area. The villa also houses all the rehearsal spaces, offices, video editing suite, dance studio and library. This means that the regular activity of the building takes place in the light, beautifully restored listed building.
