Month in Pictures: May 2013

Posted on: June 6, 2013 in: CLS Behind the Scenes, Month in Pictures

After a jam-packed May, we’ve finally had time to sit down, catch our breath and bring you another edition of Month in Pictures. Last month, we were on the road visiting cathedrals up and down the country as part of our Fauré Requiem Tour and we’ve loved meeting new audiences in Durham, Ely, Portsmouth and Derby. Bring on the next leg of the tour in October! It’s also been a busy month for our Education Team with Little Red Riding Hood’s Crash Bang Wallop!, our ongoing Key Stage 1 project in Tower Hamlets and the culmination of our workshops at St Joseph’s Hospice as part of Dying Matters week. And if that’s not enough, there’s been a new arrival at the office in the form of our Chief Operating Officer’s adorable puppy, Dolly! If you were at Crash Bang Wallop! on 11 May, you’ll know who we’re talking about…


There’s an impostor in the office! Not really – it’s just the Big, Bad Wolf gearing up for our workshop in Tower Hamlets


And here he is entertaining the masses with some fine musical accompaniment from the City of London Sinfonia Brass Quintet
