You know the problem getting people to attend new music?
The London Sinfonietta think they’ve cracked it by inviting audience members to play a part.
The deal is people buy a £10 ticket. If they turn up to two rehearsals, the money is refunded and the concert is free.
So who pays? Work that one out later.
Here‘s the blurb:
Two ground-breaking commissions by Christian Mason and Huang Ruo give you the chance to perform world premieres with the London Sinfonietta.
No musical experience is needed: glass bottles, Chinese baoding balls, tin foil, mouth organs and whispers will be your instruments….
Rehearsal the night before: Friday 21 October 2016, 6-9pm
Rehearsal on the day: Saturday 22 October 2016 2.30-5.30pm
Commit to these two rehearsals and attend the concert for free! Book your £10 ticket here on Eventbrite and we’ll refund you the full amount upon attendance. As a thank you, we’ll also offer a discount to London Sinfonietta’s future 2016/17 events.
