King's Place - London's new arts hub
This is where we'll be spending lots of time in the next few years ! On October 1st, King's Place will open near King's Cross. Exciting architecture, and very interesting impact on the surrounding area. Plus it will be "South Bank North", home to the London Sinfonietta and the Orchestra of the Age of the Enlightenment. and "Aldeburgh South" hosting Aldeburgh connected events. This morning the post brought the full brochure with details of the 100 concerts planned, the facilities etc. Steve Reich, Ligeti's 100 Metronomes etc. Seems too they will be heavy on outreach, with lots on world music, jazz, community and even Lieder! Here is a link to an article in the Independent. Why are visual arts and architecture writers usually better than music writers ?
