stockholm_final_coverKeeping up tradition, the RTO is off on another international tour.
The RTO has been invited  to play in Stockholm. We will be playing in the Musikaliska Hall, in central Stockholm, on the 3rd June 2017.
The Lilla Akademien, our host,  is a specialist music school. Originally it was only for primary children but now has pupils of all ages. This has all been achieved in less than 20 years. Schools in Sweden are not allowed to be selective but the Lilla Akademien have managed to persuade the Parliament to relax the rules a bit. Their musical standards are very high, so why have they taken a risk and  invited the RTO?
The Swedes take their music very seriously and the RTO has been invited to show that music can also be fun. We hope to demonstrate that audiences are allowed to laugh as they appreciate the efforts of the musically challenged,
The pupils will be playing a movement from the Schubert Unfinished symphony. Another school, from the Channel Islands, will also be playing. These crafted pieces promise to be a delight
The RTO will make a major contribution to the second half. Perhaps the audience will walk out but maybe the parents will be inspired to attempt to outshine their talented children and form their own orchestra!

 SEE YOU IN STOCKHOLM IN JUNE!

Five Star RTO

Five-star the RTO continues to lead the revolution for the musically disadvantaged with its unique musical interpretations. A triumph that proves bad is good. With its blend of humour, musicality and lack of technical prowess, the players surge through a lively programme taking the audience with them, creating a wave of excitement and hope that nothing will go wrong. The RTO never disappoints. 'These musicians who are dreadful are always a hot ticket. How can that be?' (ABC News) MORE
