Baroque Music at King’s Cross
Sunday September 28, 2 – 5pm
St Pancras Old Church

Lisa Tang has alerted the Community Bulleting Board that on Sunday September 28th the OAE will be hosting an open event as part of the Mayor of London’s Open Rehearsal initiative and the OAE’s Musicians on Call scheme, in which the musicians visit residential homes and hospices around the country to play and chat to the residents.

We are delighted to be holding this event in the beautiful setting of St Pancras Old Church, near to Kings Cross St Pancras. You can drop in for free anytime between 2-5pm to meet us, listen to beautiful music and chat with the players. The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment (OAE) plays on instruments and in styles appropriate to the age of the music, allowing you to hear it as the composer intended. Renowned for its vitality, energy and warmth this is a great opportunity to come and hear the Orchestra in its new neighbourhood, as from July the OAE has had its Headquarters at the new Kings Place development near King’s Cross. The Orchestra is also Resident at Southbank Centre where it gives a series of concerts between October and June each year.

This open event is dedicated to Lisa Pontecorvo who was an enthusiastic community activist in the Caledonian Ward, Islington and Camden and worked closely with the OAE’s education team on projects linked to Edward Square.

    It is wonderful that this event has been arranged because Lisa was so keen to bring good music to the youngsters and to arrange happy occasions for them to make the learning enjoyable. She was very appreciative that the members of the orchestra gave time to bring such pleasure at Edward Square explaining the instruments and accompanying the Tudor dancing which was a delight to watch (and join in!!). I love music myself and hope to meet some of the musicians on 28th.
