'Italian harpsichords like this were particularly favoured for their ability to fit in lifts when the concert was on the first floor...'
First there was the Southbank Centre in London. Then the Roundhouse, Wilton’s Music Hall, Village Underground, London pubs, Brighton and Bristol. Now the Night Shift spreads its wings even further with our first-ever event in New York on 1 March.
While the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment is a regular in New York, with appearances at the Lincoln Center, doing a Night Shift in the Big Apple is a first. We’re doing a pub-style event for this premiere New York appearance, with an intimate gig at Brooklyn’s Littlefield on 1 March featuring strings from the Orchestra plus horn soloist Roger Montgomery, with music from Mozart and Michael Haydn (the brother of the more famous Josef, in case you were wondering).
There’ll be two 30 minute sets from the Orchestra plus a support act to be announced. Advance tickets are just $10 and can be purchased here and you can find more info about the night on the event page.
If you’re a UK based Night Shift fan, do spread the word to any New York friends. And, if you’re in New York and reading this and can lend us a hand in anyway as we promote the event (in any way no matter how large or small) we’d love to hear from you. Drop Will a line here.
Keep your eyes on our website and social media for more news and details, and we’ll look forward to seeing you in London or New York soon.
