Debut live stream – tonight!

Tue 8 Feb 2011

Tonight sees our very first live stream of a concert, direct from the Queen Elizabeth Hall at the Southbank Centre.
We’ll be ‘on air’ from 5.45pm, with the OAE Extras event when conductor David Zinamn will be interviewed by broadcaster Rob Cowan. This will be followed at 7pm by the concert itself: Mendelssohn’s Overture, Intermezzo, Nocturne and Scherzo from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Weber’s Clarinet Concerto No.1 (with soloist Antony Pay) and then Beethoven’s Symphony No.7.

We’ll be doing a repeat of the stream this Saturday live from Basingstoke’s Anvil, starting at 7.45pm, and straight into the concert.

There’ll be live chat during the show so feel free to ask us some (easy) questions! Ceri, Megan, Zen and myself (William) will all be answering your burning OAE queries.
