Glasto welcomes Vicki Stone

Vikki Stone Glasto2017

Our own Vikki Stone (OW 2001) was at the festival on Sunday afternoon on the stage at the Astrolabe Theatre. She performed her debut orchestral work Concerto for Comedian and Orchestra with 26 musicians from the WCS Chamber Orchestra.

As the title suggests, it is an orchestral piece, but the concerto “soloist” is a comedian. It is a spoken word concerto (with some equally fine music), focusing on comedy and is the first work of its kind – “a sort of Peter And The Wolf but with jokes”. We loved the debut performance recently in Cedars Hall and she will be taking it to Edinburgh and elsewhere this summer.

The piece has been in development for a year, and has already received support from Arts Council England and the PRS Foundation Women Make Music scheme.

Vikki also had a spot on the Cabaret Stage at Glastonbury and is busy with work for TV and other live performance. She is great fun and we love her!
