Are you a young graduate who is eager to network, meet new people, try something new and do business? Orpheus Sinfonia, themselves outstanding recent graduates, are hosting a networking event alongside their next concert Beneath The Score: The Love Triangle on 23rd March. There will be opportunities to meet other like-minded people before the concert, during the interval, and also afterwards over a drink or two.

There are many networking events out there but this one will be unique in its combination of business and culture. The concert’s theme focuses around classical music’s most famous love triangle between husband and wife Robert and Clara Schumann and their friend Johannes Brahms. Who will win over Clara in the end? Far from being your stereotypical concert, the music will be explained in a simple yet informative way, perfect for the classical music novice. Armed with this knowledge, you will be able to talk intelligently about culture when entertaining your clients back at the office. The concert is also a great excuse to take time out of your busy schedule to relax: being a young graduate can be tough if you are in a new city, job and routine.

So, come along, enjoy some great music, get noticed and make connections for yourself and your company.

Don’t forget your business cards!

Beneath The Score: The Love Triangle, St George’s Hanover Square, 19:30, 23rd March. Reserve your £5 tickets by emailing clara@wildkatpr.com
