Why Friday the 13th wont be so bad after all: a new Night Shift podcast

Wed 11 Aug 2010

Ahead of our special summer event at Wilton’s this Friday (the 13th) we’ve just released this new podcast which looks forward to the event. In it, we find out about the history of the venue – and why the can-can was banned, chat with OAE leader and violinist Matthew Truscott (who was in a rather windy Glyndebourne) about the music and get your reactions to the last event back in May. Find out more about The Night Shift and how to buy tickets at its special website. This podcast also features our Pod Idol winner Raul – making his debut as the voice of the pod.

“The Night Shift, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment’s late night concert series”

“The Night Shift. Classical music, minus the rules”

Thank you to everyone who entered, we were pleasantly surprised at how many of you gave it a go! We’ve now picked our favourites and it’s now down to you, blog readers and Night Shift fans, to pick a winner. Listen to the clips below and then VOTE!
