This is the question posed by Notion magazine in their latest issue, going on to say:

” Nothing is uncool anymore, I know becaus Brian Eno said so recently…Cool itself is rather passé. There is, however, one exception, the impregnable bastion of uncool: Classical music.

It’s fair to say that Notion isn’t usually the kind of magazine that the OAE appears in, which in a way is why we’re especially excited to be featured. The article (which features yours truly, and more importantly OAE Leaders Maggie Faultless and Matthew Truscott) asks why classical music hasn’t become ‘cool’ like Contemporary Art or Theatre, and takes a look at our Night Shift series of concerts. You can read the article online here – just go to page 56 of the magazine.

The Night Shift makes its debut appearance at the Roundhouse in Camden on 29 January – details here and tickets here.
