As many of you know, running alongside our ‘regular’ concerts we have a now well-established late-night series, The Night Shift. Now running for 7 years, the series presents our music in a relaxed late-night setting where many of the usual conventions of concert-going are suspended. The series is constantly evolving and last year we did something really quite different and took 3 players from the OAE on tour – to 5 London pubs.
The tour was incredibly successful and played to packed pubs, audience acclaim and enthusiastic press reviews. So good was it that we’ve decided to do it all over again, although this time with two new twists – extending the tour outside of London and featuring 3 premieres by young composers.
Last time we undertook the tour we turned to our audience to help us make it happen with a crowdfunding campaign – basically looking for a host of small donations that collectively added up to an impressive amount. Over 50 people donated and now, with a new tour in the planning we’re running a further crowdfunding campaign. In return for donations we offer a range of interesting benefits, ranging from a simple thank you on Facebook and Twitter, through to the opportunity to have your very own private Night Shift.
