Back at the start of November we performed Beethoven’s epic Missa Solemnis, together with conductor Gianandrea Noseda and the Philharmonia Chorus. In this video we catch up with audience members after the concert to ask what they made of it – and there’s also some short extracts from the performance too.Read More
As you may just have noticed from this blog, one of the highlights of our year so far has been our tour with Sir Simon Rattle and Katia and Marielle Labèque.

Our intrepid camera-man Zen caught up with you after the show to find out what you thought.

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.
Lots of positive comments after our performance on Wednesday, what did you think of the concert?Read More
