Our next concert
A note on changes to COVID-19 guidance
Due to recent changes in government guidance to limit the spread of COVID-19, face coverings will be mandatory at this concert, unless you are exempt. We request that you wear a face covering at all times, except when eating or drinking. Hand sanitiser and spare disposable masks will be available at the church.
Join us as we explore music of dreams and the supernatural. The programme is full of contrasts, from the frantic and fantastical ‘Night on Bald Mountain’ to etherial arias by Puccini and Delibes.
There will be two performances of this programme. The first performance will be a shorter relaxed performance, where the audience is invited to move around the space, come and go, and make noise during the music. The concert will last 1 hour with no interval and will take place on:
4 December, 3.30pm (doors open 2.45pm)
St George's Church Bloomsbury
The second performance will include the full programme and take place on:
11 December, 7.00pm (doors open 6.15pm)
St Giles in the Fields Church
As always, drinks, cakes, and other refreshments will be available to purchase before the performance and in the interval.
