The City of London Sinfonia present Died For Love with Sam Lee...
Last night Sam Lee performed to a captivated audience in St John in Hackney.
It is a stunning space, and each note played filled the air with emotion.
Sam commanded attention from his audience, who were sat (some with eyes closed) listening intently to every beautiful melody that he and the orchestra created. His enthusiasm for his craft was infectious, you could tell he truly loved his music and the experience of being able to perform it from the huge smile on his face throughout the night.
Ive never been to an orchestral performance before and from the moment I stepped into the hall, it felt like I had been transported to a magical space. The audience arched around the orchestra, some sat on chairs and others on cushions on the floor, like children waiting waiting for story time to begin. They were guided on a journey through these wonderful swelling and ebbing pieces, reminiscent of great film sound tracks such as Lord Of The Rings.
It was a wonderful evening, and I hope the shots I captured tell that story.
Flash you later
