Nine Ships Performing Cruise Ship Horn Concert





Nine ships took part in a cruise ship horn concert as a prelude to the spectacular New Year’s Eve fireworks display in Madeira.

The 10-minute concert, organised by Madeira Regional Government,  was centred around a musical score composed by Francisco Loreto, entitled ‘2015 Cruise Ships Horn Symphony’.

Nine Ships Performing Cruise Ship Horn Concert

The melody was specifically created for the nine ships to play. Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines‘ Black Watch was accompanied by Cruise & Maritime Voyages‘ Magellan and Marco Polo, P&O Cruises‘ Oceana, Cunard Line‘s Queen Elizabeth, Thomson Cruises‘ Thomson Majesty, AIDA Cruises’ AIDAblu and AIDAsol, and TUI Cruises’ Mein Schiff 4.

Each vessel’s horn has its own frequency and tuning, equivalent to musical notes. A local composer stood at Funchal harbour’s tower and, through radio connection to all the ships’ Bridges, directed a crew musician on each of the nine cruise ships with the rhythm beat, in order to synchronise all the ships’ whistles with the score.

Raquel França, Chief of Staff of the Madeira Regional Government, said:

“This kind of cruise ship concert is very unique on a global scale and takes place three years after a world début in Madeira. It is meant to be a very special moment while saying farewell to the year in a singular way, both for ship passengers moored at the port and anchored in the bay, and for the thousands of tourists and residents who will be presented with moments of magic in one of the most emblematic nights of the Region.”
Passengers then saw in the New Year watching a spectacular fireworks display, dubbed one of the best in the world.
