The last of this week’s teaser pictures is rather athletic…
Just a few of these left now. Next week we’ll be releasing a little video about the new pictures and how we got on finding audience members with a ‘strong look’.Read More
Taken us a while to put these up…but cast your mind back about 2 months and we were playing Berlioz’s huge Romeo & Juliet. Here are some pictures of us in rehearsal with OAE Principal Artist Sir Mark Elder at the Royal Festival Hall, on the morning of our evening performance there ( inbetween the Philharmonia gave a family concert, it was quite a busy day for the Festival Hall!). All pictures are by Joe Plommer and you can view the entire set over on our Flickr profile.
Last month we gave the world premiere performances of Sally Beamish’s Spinal Chords, one of the PRS for Music 20×12 comissions for the Olympic year. The music is set to text by Melanie Reid, and was for these first performances, narrated by Juliet Stevenson. Here are a few pictures from the rehearsal and London performance. All pictures by Joe Plommer.
Here’s a few pictures from our Night Shift event at the Southbank Centre at the end of September.
Apologies for the delay- we’ve had a very busy few weeks, launching our new concert series, The Works, and launching this new website!
You can view the full set (all taken by Joe Plommer) over on The Night Shift’s Facebook page or on Flickr.Read More
Here’s a little audio-visual recap of The Night Shift which we held at Village Underground a few weeks back. Project Director Ceri’s account of how her Night Shift day went is below, but in this post we have a little video with footage from the event plus audience reaction – make sure you watch it right to the end…
Also a selection of pics – you can view the full set over on The Night Shift’s Facebook page or instead on Flickr, if you prefer.
OAE Projects Manager Megan Russell is a keen photographer and took some great pictures from the Luxembourg and Paris legs of the tour – here are a selection:Read More
So below we posted some rather scary unofficial pictures from the last Night Shift, which mainly seemed to consist of people screaming at the camera. Now we can post some other, perhaps more beautiful, official pictures, taken by Joe Plommer. The full set can be viewed here. The Night Shift returns on 24 June as part of the Spitalfields Music Summer Festival.Read More
Here’s a second set of pics taken backstage around our performance of L’estro Armonico earlier this year, taken by Karen Robinson. This set is from the afternoon rehearsal.Read More
A while back, photographer Karen Robinson was commissioned by Southbank Centre to take pictures of the Resident Orchestras and their major artists, with a view to using the images for the Southbank Centre’s 2010-2011 Classical Music Season. You may well have already seen the photographs in the Southbank’s Classical Music Guide. As part of the project, Karen spent a day with the OAE as we rehearsed and performed Vivaldi’s L’estro armonico at the Queen Elizabeth Hall. The results are fantastic, and a wonderful glimpse into what happens backstage at a concert. Here’s an initial selection (from the afternoon rehearsal), and more will follow.

The pictures we used for our 2009-2010 season seemed to stir up a fair amount of interest, debate and comment, and now it’s already time for us to think about next season. How are we going to top our current look (which most seem to have described as ‘American Gothic’)? Well the photoshoot is in a couple of weeks time and all we’re prepared to say is that it’s going to feature gaffer tape…Read More
Well, a full report will follow later, but in short, we had a fantastic time at the Roundhouse last night, a capacity crowd, a great atmosphere, and superb music, what more could you ask for? We’ll have lots of pictures in the coming days, but here are a few I took yesterday while we rehearsed.

Here’s a photogallery from our 2 days in Spain, thanks to Megan for being our resident paparazzi! Yesterday the OAE flew back to the UK for a days break and today they are off to Birmingham for a concert in the fabulous acoustic of Symphony Hall. Then tomorrow they fly to Germany for the final leg of the tour.
Some slightly fuzzzy heads in the OAE office today – we had our office warming and Christmas party last night. Pics to follow soon!
