Nottingham’s MacLarty Brown Media worked with students from Confetti Institute of Creative Technologies on an exclusive BBC Christmas special, ‘The Hills Are Alive With The Kanneh-Masons’, featuring live performances filmed in Metronome.
The Kanneh-Masons are an award-winning musical family, made up of seven talented brothers and sisters aged 12 to 25. Filmed on location in Salzburg, the new holiday special sees them follow in the footsteps of Austria’s most famous musical family, the Von Trapps from The Sound Of Music. Cutting between Austria and the Kanneh-Masons hometown of Nottingham, the Christmas holiday special features live performances filmed at our venue. Degree students from neighbouring specialist creative institute, Confetti, worked closely with MacLarty Brown Media and the BBC to produce the show.
This isn’t the first time the Kanneh-Masons have used Metronome in a TV special, as they previously recorded live performances in our auditorium for the Royal Television Society award-winning “A Musical Family Christmas With The Kanneh-Masons”.
Tune in to BBC Two or BBC iPlayer on Christmas Eve at 5.40pm to catch ‘The Hills Are Alive With The Kanneh-Masons’. To find out more about the programme visit the BBC website.
