We love anything Penguin Café Orchestra related so were more than happy to hear about a new project from Arthur (son of Simon) Jeffes, going by the name of Music From The Penguin Café. As many of you know Simon Jeffes was the lead composer and musician in the PCO but sadly he passed in 1997.
Arthur reformed the PCO for two tribute concerts to his father in 2007 and has now taken the Café to it’s logical next step, bringing together a group of young musicians to play the music of the Penguin Café Orchestra combined with some of his own compositions. We will be interviewing Arthur in the near future but until then here’s the dates.
