Nu Deco Ensemble have released a live performance video, “Queen Vol. 1”. Watch HERE. Filmed at Knight Concert Hall at Adrienne Arsht Center in Miami, the 18-minute medley contains reimagined versions of Queen hits such as “Another One Bites the Dust”, “We Are The Champions”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “We Will Rock You” and more. “With this suite, I wanted to create a tribute to Queen that really showed the range and dynamism of their work, which the orchestra provides a perfect setting,” explains Nu Deco co-founder and artistic director, Jacomo Bairos. “The work is divided into three main movements; the first focusing on material from an earlier album, Queen II, the second featuring music from their film score Flash Gordon, and the third being their hits.” For more information on Nu Deco Ensemble, please visit: https://nu-deco.org/.
The album release coincides with Nu Deco Ensemble’s 19/20 season, featuring collaborations with Wyclef Jean, PJ Morton, Robert Glasper, Hurray for the Riff Raff and Rev Run. A full list of upcoming performances can be found below.
Nu Deco Ensemble also recently launched Nu Deco NXT, a revolutionary youth ensemble that aims to develop compassionate, socially conscious, dynamic musicians in South Florida, grades 8 through 12. The program will be comprised of music rehearsals, workshops, jam sessions, guest lecturers and invitations to Nu Deco rehearsals during the fall and early spring, with a week-long intensive during Spring Break (March 21-28, 2020) culminating in a public performance by the youth ensemble.
