Well, this time last week we had the latest of our late night series of events, The Night Shift at the Queen Elizabeth Hall. It really feels like the series has ‘come of age’ now, with the event being the third in the last year to sell out, and our very first sell out at Southbank Centre. It’s just sad to have to turn people away! We hope everyone who came had a great night, and we have had some great feedback on Twitter. More feedback, good or bad, is always welcome though, as it helps us improve future events.
This is a bit of a roundup from the last event, and below are some pics, vox pops from the audience, a few Tweets, plus presenter Alistair Appleton has made a Spotify playlist of his favourite music by Mahler, for your further listening pleasure. The next one, on 4 May, is already on sale, and needless to say, we recommend early booking!
ThoroughlyGood Oh dear God. Where’s @theoae presenter? http://boo.fm/b258585
tomjennings Really enjoyed The Night Shift at Southbank Centre. @theoae doing Liszt’s Les Preludes and Mahler’s Totenfeier. Looking forward to next gig.
colinmyer At the #NightShift in the QEH on the South Bank. Translation: look how cultured I am.
thoroughlygood If Mahler’s Totenfeier represents what happens directly after death then I see little difference with a normal day at work. #thenightshift
payamtorabi Night Shift with the OAE: inspirationally different approach to music. Well worth going if you get the chance.
Artyomliss The Night Shift @Southbank. Is it right to be attempting to turn a classical music performance into a “facebook-style event”? Discuss…
101holidays Great performance by @theoae at the Southbank Centre last night. Love the Night Shift
