Performance Details

Whilst we are absolutely determined to return to the concert stage just as soon as possible, sadly it has become increasingly clear that we are not going to be able to perform our 20/21 Season programme as advertised. 

However, despite the current challenges, there is much that we are planning to present. Beginning in September, we will be undertaking our first ever series of streamed orchestral concerts, which will be free for you to enjoy.

We begin in fine style on Thursday 24 September with The Quilter Cheviot Benedetti Concert, conducted by Maxim Emelyanychev. You can find further information about this performance here.

We are also planning a series of chamber concerts throughout the autumn which have been specially curated by our musicians. Whilst some will be available online, we will also be announcing – just as soon as we possibly can – full details of where and when you can enjoy these performances live.

To make sure you stay up-to-date with all the details of our reinvented performances, you can subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube).
