Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment take to the pubs

The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment are embarking on a very special tour at the end of this month, bringing the works of Handel, Purcell and Tartini to pubs.

As part of the orchestra’s continued efforts to bring classical music to a wider audience, the OAE will be playing five concerts in different London pubs.

The performances are part of the orchestra’s innovative ‘Night Shift’ series and will feature music from a string trio interspersed with a variety of DJ sets.

Classic FM’s Lucy Coward spoke to the orchestra’s Communications Director William Norris to find out all about this unique set of concerts.
