The ‘Congratulations‘ Single launch Concert will feature the Ad Hoc Music Collective performing the title track of the album by Andrea Keeble to be released in Dec 2017. ‘Suite Actuality’: 7 movements for string 4tet, voice and visuals by Dotahn Caspi will also be performed giving the audience a sneak preview of a number of the tracks to be released on the new “Congratulations” album – new, contemporary Eclectica.
The ‘Congratulations‘ Single is a beautifully composed song, with gorgeous, fluid vocals by Dan Witton. Far from being prosaic, the song plays on the courage in breaking down old habits as it moves from cabaret to gypsy folk to classical and back again creating an impression of positive change.
