Night Shift in rehearsal

Sat 30 Jan 2010

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.

Roundhouse preview

Thu 28 Jan 2010

Our office team is just about to rush off down to Southbank Centre for tonight’s concert at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, but before we go I thought I’d post some pics from a trip some of us made to the Roundhouse last week – we went to see an early evening concert with the Britten Sinfonia and a late night one with the London Contemporary Orchestra – both were great, and it gave us a chance to see the set up for the reverb series, of which we’ll be a part tomorrow. If you’re coming to tonight’s concert – enjoy and do let us know what you think!

Classical music. The last bastion of uncool?

Fri 22 Jan 2010

This is the question posed by Notion magazine in their latest issue, going on to say:

” Nothing is uncool anymore, I know becaus Brian Eno said so recently…Cool itself is rather passé. There is, however, one exception, the impregnable bastion of uncool: Classical music.

It’s fair to say that Notion isn’t usually the kind of magazine that the OAE appears in, which in a way is why we’re especially excited to be featured. The article (which features yours truly, and more importantly OAE Leaders Maggie Faultless and Matthew Truscott) asks why classical music hasn’t become ‘cool’ like Contemporary Art or Theatre, and takes a look at our Night Shift series of concerts. You can read the article online here – just go to page 56 of the magazine.

The Night Shift makes its debut appearance at the Roundhouse in Camden on 29 January – details here and tickets here.
