Calendar set to raise more than money alone

When Nonconform director Jon Barraclough and designer Mike Carney were handed a design job for a 2002 calendar for London’s Lambeth Orchestra, they probably thought they’d be setting formal poses of musicians decked out in DJs and dresses.

But, in order to shift a few extra copies and raise some money, the players decided to take off all their clothes in a freezing theatre back-room for brave photographer Simon Rix.

In order to spare a few blushes, particularly among the men, the musicians hid their modesty with just their instruments, which is all very well if you play the double bass, but you’ve got to feel sorry for the flute player.

Apparently the male conductor has got a tiny baton, but by all means check out the calendar for yourselves at www.lambeth-orchestra.org.uk.
