Night Shift hangover revisited…

Thu 5 May 2011

With a rather tired team back in the office today it seems like an appropriate time to point you in the direction of this old p0st.

The Orchestra is really extraordinarily busy at the moment, so they’re also probably feeling a little tired – here’s a run-down of what we’ve been up to this week:

Monday: Rehearse for Fidelio performance at the Brighton festival
Tuesday: More rehearsals for Fidelio
Wednesday: Afternoon rehearsal, and then 7pm and 10pm concerts with Roy Goodman and Artur Pizarro at the Queen Elizabeth Hall
Thursday (today!): First rehearsal for Glyndebourne’s Don Giovanni with conductor Robin Ticciati, plus our AGM
Friday: More Don Giovanni rehearsals
Saturday: Fidelio Rehearsals
Sunday: Fidelio Rehearsal and performance at the Brighton Dome

Phew! And then the following week we have more Don Giovanni rehearsals, plus rehearsals for and performance of Mozart Requiem with the Bach Choir…
