The time has come to unveil our new season brochure.This year we went for a purely visual approach, developed with our designers Harrison and Co and photographer Eric Richmond, which has a slight retro feel, using geometric shapes combined with a simple two tone palette.
This season is one of Kings, Fools and Revolutionaries, with an incendiary line up including Sir Simon Rattle, Sigiswald Kuijkemn, the Labèque Sisters and Sarah Connolly. There’ll be the chance to hear the violoncello da spalla, an ‘extinct’ instrument, brought back to life in a performance with Sigiswald Kuijken, the man who directed the OAE’s very first concert 27 years ago and for the younger music lovers there’s stories and singing with our TOTs and family concerts. On top of that, we’ll be delving deeper into selected masterpieces with The Works and going on more late night expeditions into a world minus rules, with our Night Shift series.
We hope you enjoy the brochure and if you’d like a physical copy drop us a line.
