I have walked past Conway Hall on my way from Holborn tube station numerous times but only ever glanced at the notice board to see what was one. Mostly talks and lectures, I gathered, as the notice board normally had some provocative statement or question displayed in a big font. I ended up going in for Jimmy Lee's Orchestral Stories. Whilst the music wasn't entirely to my taste, the orchestra did a great job, especially considering how little practice they had had and a percentage of all the sales (from the album) were going to good causes, which is always nice to know. 

I, however, was very happy that I got to see Conway Hall. Although quite someway away from an architectural beauty, its nice to see all the studios full of art, pianos lying in corridors and the higgledy-piggeldy layout. The space itself was of a good size and gave an excellent view from the balcony. It's nicely raked in the balcony so all of the first few rows have a wonderful viewing angle. The acoustics are good and have a nice natural balance but it can't compare to somewhere like Royal Festival Hall. 

Maybe I'll try a talk next...
