It’s time for what has now become a yearly tradition for us on the OAE blog, where we turn to you, our readers to help us name a concert in our season. Last time you came up with ‘Fingers, Felix and the Freeshooter’ (for a concert of Weber, Mozart and Mendelssohn that started our current season), and the previous year the winning title was ‘Papa Haydn and Sister Act’, for a concert featuring music by Haydn and the Labéque Sisters on piano.
So, you did us proud in past seasons and now, as we plan our 2012-2013 Season (yes, we work a LONG time ahead!), we are turning to you again for some help. The concert is below – can you think of a catchy title for it? Leave your ideas below as comments and we’ll pick our favourite. For those of you new to this, each of our London concerts has a title, intended to give potential ticket-buyers a flavour of the evening. They can be straightforward, witty or even irreverent.
Suggestions must be in by next Friday 4 November. And in case you’re really keen, the season goes on sale in February next year.
