The Burning Bush was formed after Lucie Skeaping was invited to make a BBC documentary to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the expulsion of the Jews from Spain and to explore her own East European roots. Since their debut at London's Queen Elizabeth Hall, the group has performed to packed houses at major festivals and cultural events throughout the world. Recent activities include tours to Germany, Slovenia, Slovakia, Croatia, Finland and South America. London concerts include the Barbican, Royal Festival Hall and Royal National Theatre. They are frequently heard on BBC Radio and have appeared in several films, including Polanski's Oscar-winning 'The Pianist' shot in Warsaw. A grant from the Arts Council has taken them to Israel and Greece for research. Their sell-out concert at the Royal Festival Hall with the BBC Concert Orchestra featured the World Premiere of 'The Vanished Shtetl' by Roderick Skeaping, a BBC commission for the orchestra to perform together with The Burning Bush, broadcast on BBC Radio 3. The group appeared in the new 4-part series 'Early Music' for BBC TV and were also the subject of a documentary film shot in Denmark.
