The Hallé - Mahler's Ninth Symphony

"Mahler's Ninth Symphony was written at a time of extreme personal crisis with the powerful sense of an ending felt throughout the work.

As the composer stares, unblinkingly, at his own mortality, there's fierce defiance to match the torment, plenty of sardonic humour and, finally, a quiet resignation. Contemplating the eternal, Mahler finds expression through some of his most moving and progressive music, with shattering outbursts and rich harmonies that reach out to a place beyond this world.

Sir Mark Elder will introduce the symphony from the stage before the performance."

If you want to come, please RSVP as early as you can as tickets may sell out. You can either book your own seat or I can book us seats together. I suggest we go for the cheap seats at the back of Tier 2, which are £10 (or £16.50 if the £10 seats have sold out).

If you book your own seats, please post the seat number here so others in the group can try to book near to you.

The concert begins at 7:30 - we can meet for a drink beforehand.

    Excellent performance. I haven't been to a classical concert for ages, and this was a great welcome back to the world of classical music. Many thanks for arranging it, Adrian.

    Let's meet in Lily Langtry's (the pub opposite the Royal Centre) at[masked]pm. We can move across to the concert hall around 7.10. If anyone doesn't want to come to the pub, you can meet us in the concert hall foyer at 7.15 (if I have bought your ticket for you, please be there on time). Make sure you are in the concert hall, not the theatre! If you have any problems finding me, call me mobile: 07896 520284. See you tomorrow, Adrian

      Thanks Adrian. Hope to make it on time for the pub, but if not I'll be lurking by the staircase in the foyer.

    @chriskey: have you booked your ticket? Let me know so I know whether to look for you.

    Anyone else who hasn't told me that they've booked a ticket: I will change your RSVP to 'No'. If you have booked, please change it back and post here to let me know. Thanks.

    Hi there

    I'm glad to see I'll be sitting next to a couple of you. I'm happy to meet in the theatre bar or Saltwater beforehand. What would work best for everyone?

    cheers

    Hi there

    This will be my first meet up with this group. I've booked my own seat as I'm rather late in getting on to this (stalls - A7). I'd be happy to meet for a drink beforehand. Will you be in the theatre bar on the ground floor or upstairs?

    cheers

      Hi Helen. Great, it will be lovely to meet you. I will post details here nearer the time but I expect we will meet beforehand in the lower bar or the lobby area.

    Hello, I've just booked my ticket - seat A6.

    May 25, 2014

  • Adrian

    OK, so I've booked seats T6-T9 in Tier 2 for myself, Jim, Lynne and Deborah. If anyone else would like to come, please book your own seats (T4&5 are currently free) and post here to let me know that you are coming. For anyone who hasn't booked a ticket, I will change your RSVP to No.

    Hi everyone,
    I think we are ready to book these tickets. There are still some seats at £10 at the back of Tier 2. (We might as well go for the cheap seats since the acoustics are good and you don't really need to see the orchestra close up).
    With booking fees, the total is £10.30 each. So if you want to come, please send me this amount. The best way to pay is by PayPal to [masked] - please make sure you mark this as a personal payment so that you pay the fees for the transaction. Alternatively, you can send me a cheque (email me for the address) or give me cash if you see me. I can also receive money via internet banking (email me for details).
    Please pay me by 10th May so that I can make the booking.
