September marked the successful launch event of the OAE King’s Cross Business Club.  Our launch event around our Bite Size Baroque concert was followed by a lively talk by Education Manager, Cherry Forbes.  The event proved so popular we needed to open up a second concert and reception to avoid turning people away!

The club recognises that we are now a key member of King’s Cross ever-changing community.  We are providing an opportunity for businesses to meet, exchange ideas and, of course, enjoy some lovely music together.    While we are relatively new to Kings Place, Cherry has been working in local schools here for many years and she is now a well known force in the area.  Recently, Cherry started a series of schools concerts, with the support of King Place.  This means that 2500 children participate alongside the OAE in performance at Kings Place each year – most of these children would never normally experience live classical music or be able to take their musical abilities to the next level.

The Business Club has three tiers:  £5000 Enlightened, £2000 Wise, and  £500 Clued up.  We are delighted to welcome Green and Fortune and Parabola Land as Founder members.  Sign up now!!!!

More on this as it evolves….
