After I left Shoreham Airshow on the Sunday, I jumped on a train for Chiswick House and The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
I’m not sure I have mentioned this in the past but one of the loves of my partner is film soundtrack music, with him regularly writing reviews for a well known website in this sphere. Our thoughts were we could both cover the concert and have an enjoyable evening at the same time.
I started off getting one or two general views before taking to the side of the stage to photograph the conductor Joel McNeely (orchestral music is one time where stage-side is a good spot, otherwise it is impossible to get good images of the conductor at work)
We then both settled down for a wonderful evening of music.
Toward the end there was a short power failure when (as luck would have it) a piper was on stage and he managed to keep us entertained as the power was restored.
All in all a rather pleasant evening.
