We’re delighted to announce New Beginnings, our first live performance series of 2021, opening on Friday 16 April.
This new concert series represents new beginnings in so many ways. A new beginning as we hopefully begin to see our way out of the coronavirus pandemic. A new beginning for Sage Gateshead as we finally prepare to welcome back live audiences. New beginnings in nature, with the arrival of the Spring. And Royal Northern Sinfonia celebrate their own very special new beginning with the appointment of Dinis Sousa as their Principal Conductor, the dawn of an exciting new era for the orchestra.
Featuring concerts with Royal Northern Sinfonia as well as performances by visiting contemporary artists, the season will continue until 25 June with more programme announcements to come.
Though performances are live stream only for now, we look forward to welcoming audiences back to the building later in the series, and will share information about that when we can. The safety of our artists, audiences, and staff remains our priority.
We know the North East and its communities have been hit hard by Covid-19, but we are ready to actively play a role in reconnecting and recovering together through music. New Beginnings represents hope for our artists, our audiences, and our region.
We hope you can join us.
