What is happening at the South Bank - 2

Whilst at the South Bank on Friday I picked up a copy of their April brochure, listing all the events. Granted, they are promoting a concert series called Ether which mixes a variety of different contemporary styles (from popular avant garde to London Sinfonietta), but their main classical pages seem to consist entirely of concerts from the resident orchestras. If you take away OAE, LPO and Philharmonia then you are left with some fine chamber/vocal concerts and the Bach Choir, with not that much else. It seems that Classical Music is taking a smaller and smaller role in the general South Bank programming and I really wonder what the 2012 Olympic festival will actually produce.
