Just in case you hadn’t seen it, today is the day exactly 100 years ago that the LSO left Euston station and went to America. They avoided going on the Titanic because of a change in schedule and spent weeks touring America and Canada. We were sent a diary which was written by Charles Turner who was the timp player in the orchestra at the time. It describes his adventures in the new world and the reaction of audiences to that groundbreaking trip. I have taken his diary and condensed the best bits into tweets just like we do now so that you can follow his progress around America in real time- 100 years later exactly.
The regular blog will be back soon when we start racing around Europe for your pleasure. Until then, have a look here
See you soon
