“Infectious diseases shouldn’t be this much fun!”

“Infectious diseases shouldn’t be this much fun!”

That’s the verdict of one of the guests at the opening night of Song of Contagion. Having kept us wondering until the last minute, composer Tony Haynes unveiled a rocking good show last night (Tuesday June 13). I’m not musical enough to blow our own trumpet, so I’ll share some of the comments from the audience.

“Ridiculous amount of talent among musicians”
“You should tour Europe. It was awesome and inspiring”
“A tonic for our times. Brilliant, moving and very groovy”
“I really enjoyed the musical diversity, the different moods it brought us to and (cherry on the cake) the fantastic venue”
“What a great spirit we have in London. This is multiculturalism at its best”
“Made me feel enlivened, privileged, lucky and blind to injustice.”

There’s a lot more, but perhaps you should get along to the show between now and Saturday June 17th, and see for yourself!
