Our weekly meeting for Orchestra Vitae – coffee and breakfast in Pain Quotidien at Victoria, Rob is early, Mike late so all is normal! Much talk of the performance Orchestra Vitae provided at the TEDxAlbertopolis Event at the Royal Albert Hall on Monday.
The excitement is building for our next Concert in a month’s time – our chance to play at Saint John’s Smith Square with a great programme.
We sit and update on ticket sales, rehearsal dates and venues, musicians, the recording of the concert, the plans for our Outreach Event before the concert, marketing, the website, the guest list, Mike and Rob’s new haircuts, Mike’s work with Nicola Benedetti at the Royal Albert Hall on Tuesday, and back to the agenda, catering for rehearsals, printing, flyer design and the budget – phew!
Mike confirms that Steven McNeff the composer has confirmed his attendance at the concert and we are thrilled. His piece ‘Secret Destinations’ is part of our programme and to know he will be at the concert is very important to us.
We finally part with meeting notes taken, lists of action noted, excitement, and great motivation for the coming weeks. Rob goes to The Royal Albert Hall, Fiona to the Royal College of Music, Mike to his work at the Foundation of International Education and Barbara to her office – Team OV.
