Now time for some music by Felix Mendelssohn's good friend, Prince Albert (i.e. Queen Victoria's husband).… twitter.com/i/web/status/1…
When us OAE office workers think about the summer we often associate it with the word ‘quiet’. That’s not because we’re putting our feet up
and drinking champagne (often) but because usually, our London concerts stop for a bit.
As you may know, our main season of concerts in London runs from October through to May, and the summer period is usually a bit different – the Orchestra is down in Glyndebourne for much of the time and while we do some touring it’s generally less intensive than during the rest of the year.
So for the office team this often gives us a chance to recover, regroup and do some long-range planning. Not so this year. Because unsually, we’re doing several events in London. We have the Proms, which is normal, but we’ve also just announced a special summer Night Shift. We’ve wanted to do a summer event in the Night Shift series for a while, as it’s such a long gap between events otherwise. And we’re thrilled (understatement) that it’s going to be at Wilton’s Music Hall. When Ceri, our Projects Director, and I looked at it a month or so back we knew instantly it would be perfect, and we were over the moon (there were whoops in the office) when it was all confirmed.
The event goes on sale tomorrow, at noon, and all the info is on the website. Tomorrow we’ll also post up some pics of Wilton’s and announce a second special summer event…
