RNS 60 @ 60

Posted on 21 June 2018

You’ll have seen the portraits of our wonderful orchestra members around Sage One this season. Next year, to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of Royal Northern Sinfonia we’re focussing on the very special relationship the orchestra has with its audience, i.e. YOU.

We are looking for members of our audience who are willing to have their photograph taken by a professional photographer here at Sage Gateshead, and to share their stories and memories of RNS. These will feature as part of an exhibition across the season on the walls of Sage One – portraits of sixty of our audience members, celebrating sixty years of RNS. 60 @ 60.

The exhibition will celebrate the whole range of our audience, from first-timers attending Classics 4 Kids to our longstanding, loyal subscribers. To add a musical twist, we would like to photograph you listening to your favourite piece of music.

The first photography session will be from 1pm – 7pm on Saturday 7 July, to coincide with our RNS Sampler, a day of free, short concerts offering a fun, accessible guided tour of musical history. If you’re already coming, why not sign up for a photograph as well? And if you haven’t booked yet, grab a friend, enjoy some free music, and join in our RNS 60 @ 60 project.

Keen to take sign up? For more information please email classical@sagegateshead.com and we’ll be back in touch. Time to get thinking about choosing your favourite piece of classical music…
