I just realised that yesterday our blog celebrated one year online. It’s been a busy year, and we’ve really enjoyed blogging about the OAE’s activities – and hope you have enjoyed reading! We fully intend to go on in the style and manner in which we have started…

To celebrate we’re giving away a pair of tickets to each of three forthcoming concerts. Simply send us an email here, stating which of the three concerts below you’d like to come to, and we’ll pick winners at random on Friday. Deadline for entries is 9am Friday 4 December.

Mozart Deconstructed – Marin Alsop explores, deconstructs and conducts Mozart’s Symphony No.40

Saturday 5 December, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre, 10pm
