    Default post a photo of your concert

    I like to get photos of concert halls and places I visit and sometimes will try and get a picture during final bows. obviously I don't take pictures during the performance but I like to get shots of the hall and the instruments as a keepsake.
    So this thread is for pictures you've taken yourself, not ones you find on the internet.
    here's a starter..

    This is Bradford Cathedral where I was last night. Bradford's chamber music series concerts are held here.

    I was clearing out my camera and I found these pictures of some of the concert halls I've visited in the last couple of years...

    Concertgebouw Amsterdam. Possibly my favourite of all the bigger concert halls.

    P1010009.jpg
    The Steinway at Wigmore Hall. I want this!

    P1010171.jpg
    Aberdeen concert hall. Granite city. Gorgeous inside though.

    Inside Aberdeen concert hall. The RSNO warming up.

    I don't get to take a lot of pictures at concerts as I'm usually working...here's one posed one and one I actually did take...

    Verizon Hall, Kimmel Center, Philadelphia (Jubilate Deo Chorale and Orchestra; I'm one of the little specks on the right side of the picture, behind the timpani)

    Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter & Paul, Philadelphia (just before a performance of Messiah a couple days before Christmas 2014. My baroque timpani are to the left)

    I always thought "sideways" is how you guys do things up North.

    These are a couple of pics from when I went to the Proms back in August (program was Vaughan Williams' Tallis Fantasia and Mahler's 9th).

    The second one is panoramic and is quite cool.

    Liverpool Philharmonic Hall. It's being refurbished at the moment and I'm back there in a couple of weeks.

    P1010784.jpg
    Guildhall Portsmouth. Lovely building! I read once that Franz Liszt was going to play a concert in Portsmouth but they only sold 1 ticket and so cancelled it!!
    That was a bit before this hall was built.

    P1010992.jpg
    Leif Ove Andsnes signing autographs after his concert at the Southbank

    P1020227.jpg
    Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. I really like this hall, it's modern but not stark like some places. It's also right in the centre of town and handy for the pub!

    It's said the pigeons fly backwards in Leeds to keep the smog out of their eyes.

    Jealous! You guys go to the coolest looking halls!

    Here are some snapshots of mine. Chicago Symphony Center:

    concert2.jpg

    This was when Mitsuko Uchida was conducting/preforming Mozart Concertos, 11 and 21 if I remember correctly

    Mitsukoandi.jpg

    ALSO I GOT TO MEET HER [this pic is old that's why I look like a wee lad]

    concert3.jpg

    This was when Stephen Hough played Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto 2 and Concert Fantasy, both bookended the "Mozartiana" Orchestral Suite
