April 24, 2015

Zero Central

You and your guests have already seen the Apple Watch so what can wow them instead? We’ve got some ideas.... "Read More

Nailing a Networking Event

April 23, 2015

Networking can be a little foreboding for some. A large venue, everyone has a name badge and oh my goodness, maybe fifty business cards was a few too many to arrive with considering you’ve been passing the time by eating the free nibbles and chatting to Mel from Accounts for the past fifteen minutes.

But they needn’t be that way! Networking should be fun (genuinely) and to help make it easier, here’s a quick guide.

Classical Month – The History of Classical Music Part II: Baroque and Classical

April 22, 2015

In a previous blog we looked at Early Music, spanning such eras as Renaissance and Medieval before Claudio Montaverdi came in and decided the world was now ready to baroque. (Yes, we went there.)

It’s now time to not only focus on this era but also the Classical movement, which features a number of names you may well recognise. So what are you waiting for? Head over to YouTube, tap in ‘classical music’, select the first video you come across and allow the gorgeous orchestral piece to play as we bring you (almost) up to speed on the history of classical music.

Tips For Auditioning with Us

April 20, 2015

For those who follow us on Twitter, we recently reposted a brilliant blog on how a musician should prepare before they come and visit us for an audition, but until now there hasn’t really been anything for any of the other wonderful acts that we’ve met over the years.

As such, here are a few general tips for somebody who we’ve invited in for a short performance in our ‘intimate surroundings’ (/glorified prop cupboard). Don’t stress out if you don’t do these things but they’re definitely worth bearing in mind.

5 Records to Break at your Event

April 17, 2015

As you may or may not be aware, the independent record store is under threat. In an effort to keep it going, each year there are a small handful of recordings released on the day in various formats. Exciting releases this year include Metallica’s original demos available on a cassette tape, a Monty Python duet with Stephen Hawking and the soundtrack to Psycho on 7” vinyl. Ooh.

Now we aren’t a record store, but maybe it’s a different record you want to get involved with at your event? In that case we can definitely help!

Classical Month – The History of Classical Music Part I: Early Music (Medieval and Renaissance)

April 16, 2015

Early music is an umbrella term that focuses on any classical music from before 1600. This includes periods you may have heard referred to as medieval and renaissance as well as other terms you may recognise like ‘Gregorian chant’, which is named after Pope St. Gregory the Great who is supposed to have invented the style. You may think that he also invented the calendar but you would be wrong. That was invented by Pope Gregory XIII in February 1582, who was presumably tapping along to his favourite renaissance tune at the time. But what do all these terms mean?... "Read More

Here at Sternberg Clarke, we love entertainment in all its forms. We had a great time with circus month last month and are keen to see as many different things as possible! With that in mind, we headed off to check out the English National Ballet in action at Sadler's Wells as they performed three dances by 'three of the most influential choreographers of the 20th Century.'...
