In an immersive concert experience, we invite you to challenge your senses as we take you into a unique sound world. Expect an experience that tantalises all the senses, from blindfolds and scent bombs to cocktail tasting... The music of minimalist composer George Crumb has been described as ‘the most beautiful ugly sound’. Immerse yourself in the hauntingly beautiful Black Angels, through the darkness of Shostakovich’s popular String Quartet no.8, and finally basking in the light of Haydn’s Sunrise Quartet – all the while experiencing the music in a completely different way. Be part of the experiment.

Here's the cocktail menu to whet your appetite:

Strong Arm - Absolut Vodka, Gin, Blue Curacao, Lemon
Chocolate Rendezvous - Bacardi, Crème de Cacao
Blackberry Mule - Vodka, Crème de Mure, Ginger Beer, Lime Juice

Blindfold optional
