What is “Around the World in 80 Minutes?”

This fast-moving concert features unique global organ repertoire by native composers and is as exciting as it sounds. It takes audiences on a great journey that transcends the boundaries of countries, religions, nationalities, time periods and styles. Bringing people together through music, visuals and the grandeur of the organ, it is a story celebrating the fascinating diversity of the music of the world. 

All of our organ and multimedia concerts are performed in a rich multimedia format, with five cameras, computers and lighting, which makes the concert even more captivating and engaging for the audience. They become one with the story and they love it.

CLASSICAL AUDIENCES WANT TO HAVE A UNIQUE CONCERT EXPERIENCE

Classical Audiences want to have something exceptional.  They love the sense that this is a shared experience, but one from which they can each take away something personal and special. They love the uniqueness and excitement of a live performance, the sense that it is a one-off, an experience created there and then.

They love the  enjoyment being shaped by watching star performers and hearing new interpretations. They like that live experience offers authenticity: it allows concert attenders to experience the work of performers whom they know they like, but in a live capacity: therefore, witnessing performance quality in the most direct way possible, as well as being privy to a performance by a well-regarded player that will never be repeated exactly.

The importance of shared ethos and experience when attending classical concerts has been expressed by many people.  Sharing social experiences, including using arts events to ‘build bridges’ with distant acquaintances.

It has already become evident that the live nature of classical performance mediates the influences of familiarity: making unfamiliar works engaging and accessible, while also helping to retain experienced listeners’ interest in familiar music performed.

Concerts are viewed as unrepeatable entities that could only be experienced through the action of deciding to attend, and so in this capacity the unpredictable and therefore distinctive nature of live experience is a primary attendance motivation.
