SYMPHONY was formed in January 2000, and are now an
established kite display and entertainment team. Our displays
at major kite festivals, gala days, carnival days, country and
county shows give examples of our wide audience appeal. We have
even appeared on television promoting our fast growing,
environmentally friendly sport.
team has a squad of six members that are truly versatile, and
can interchange with each other at any given time, all but one
living around the Midlands. We try at all times to display
with a minimum of 4 team members.
team is well respected in precision team flying and in 2005 had
the privilege of flying at RAF Scampton “the home of the Red
Arrows”. With our patriotic theme of red, white, and blue, the
nickname we have been given is “the kite flying
Our several sets of kites have been
custom-built by Air Dynamics, a range of untra-light, standard,
and vented T4 kites giving us
great versatility and control no matter what the wind – excellence is pre-built into
aim with our synchronized, choreographed displays to entertain
and sometimes 'amaze' our audience. With 9 sets of kites we can
display in most wind strengths, from 1 to 26 mph, but below
'dead calm' even our most valiant efforts to launch the kites
would be to no avail.
displays we give are sheer entertainment including trick flying,
pairs flying, a trio, flying kites with no hands (!!), multi kite flying (by one man), and a finale of
up to 4 kites
in the air.
programs can be varied in length from 20 to 40 minutes depending
on programme timings and organisers’ requests. Each of our
displays carry a full commentary, with facts and figures about
the team, whilst our polished performance is being carried out
to the chosen piece of music most
suitable for today’s wind.
