"It doesn’t matter if you weren’t brought up with it or don’t know how to pronounce the composers’ names – I wasn’t, I can’t, and it still lets me in...Classical music is incredible. It doesn’t matter if you weren’t brought up with it, or don’t know how to pronounce the composers’ names, or you’ve never sat still for that amount of time without checking your phone. None of that matters at all.
The best – like the ACO – features performers in full flight, a pack of beautiful birds in formation. Experiencing this magic doesn’t ask much of you – just that you pay attention and surrender to it. You will be rewarded – it will stir you in ways that you can’t quite put into words. You don’t need to be posh to love it."
Thank you Brigid.
