The Sage is a wonderful building and well worth a visit even if you are not going to a concert.

The Sage Theatre and Concert Hall

Gateshead's  Sage Theatre and Sage Concert Hall - fantastic building of modern architecture - enjoyed a stunning performance of the Irish music and dance extravaganza "The Rhythm of the Dance".

 

The Sage, Gateshead is a marvellous piece of modern architecture. The Sage Gateshead consists of three performance spaces; a 1,700-seater main hall, a 450-seater smaller hall and another small rehearsal and performance hall called the Northern Rock Foundation Hall. Architecturally the rest of the building was designed around these three 'halls' to maximise their acoustic properties. Structurally it is three separate buildings, cleverly insulated from each other to prevent noise and vibration travelling between them. All three buildings are enclosed by the glass and steel shell, so prominent on Gateshead's river bank skyline.

 

There are lots of wonderful stained glass panels to delight the eye. The Sage is modern architecture at its best.

Folk Concert in the Northern Rock Foundation Hall

In December 2016 we attended a great concert of traditional and contemporary folk music given by the students on the 'Folk and Traditional Music BA Honours' degree course at Newcastle University.

 

 

 

This young lady sang with great feeling and was destined for a 1st! Name?
