Whale Watching = Watching Whales

One of the live events of the year is occuring on Tuesday 20th April...

Nico Muhly, Ben Frost, Sam Amidon and Valgeir Sigurdsson are all going to be taking the stage at the Barbican to perform their and collaborative works in a huge ensemble.

There's a trailer which will get you excited here, Sam Amidon pulls a silly face in it....

Be sure to arrive early so you can pop along to this though, people who miss out on this aren't very sensible either....
