  2. Hi,
    I’m interested by these performances but I would like to know a bit more about the seating arrangements and the venue. Any details would help. Are there any photographs of a concert? How are the chairs positioned? How much space between the chairs? What is the capacity of the venue? How many and what types of speakers? How loud is the performance? Is it lit? Etc etc.
    Sorry to ask so many questions.
    Thank you for any info.

    1. Hello Anthony. These performances take place in the historic St Alfege church. Seating is arranged in pews, the audience sit on the ground floor and are surrounded by the loudspeakers. The goal of including many speakers is not to create high volumes but to allow us to move the sounds around the space and create an immersive sonic field. We have been delighted to welcome over 175 people to our concerts this year and we look forward to welcoming you in the next season.
