It's a good thing we pre-made a video to explain this joke. youtube.com/watch?v=DLuM8c… twitter.com/oerdunn/status…


A re-run of something we did a year or so back that in the end came up trumps.

We give each concert in our Southbank Centre concert season a title – a way of summing up the evening in a few words. They’re (ideally) pithy, witty, perhaps a little irreverant, and should be a good way of grabbing the attention of someone who is skim-reading our brochure or website.

Last year, with your help, we came up with Papa Haydn and Sister Act for our 21 June 2011 concert with Sir Simon Rattle, the Labeque Sisters, Mozart and Haydn. So we’re turning to you again for ideas for this concert which features in our 2011-2012 season – just post your ideas as comments. And if there’s anything super-amazing there may well be a little prize in it…

The concert:

Weber Overture Der Freischutz
Mozart Piano Concerto No.23
Mendelssohn Symphony No.3, Scottish

So put those thinking caps on and get inventive…

    It should be – “Fairies, Fingers and Felix”
