Wigmore Hall will re-open its doors to the public from Monday 7th December as London emerges from UK’s second nationwide lockdown.
Before the end of 2020, Wigmore Hall will present nine concerts, each lasting approximately 60–90 minutes in length with no interval – all of which open to live audiences as the auditorium capacity is reduced to 150 (~25% of full capacity). All nine concerts will also be lived streamed on high-definition video on Wigmore Hall’s website.
For the first time since the outbreak of the pandemic in March, Wigmore Hall welcomes the return of three leading choirs Tenebrae, Stile Antico and The Cardinall’s Music. Over three concerts on 15 and 21 December, five centuries of Christmas music from Medieval polyphony to the most beloved carols will be sung by ensembles up to 8 singers.
‘At the end of this tumultuous year, we are pleased to be able to bring choirs back to Wigmore Hall for three raptly beautiful Christmas programmes. News of the vaccine has brought renewed hope for 2021, and it is with this cautious optimism that Wigmore Hall will continue to support musicians in the challenging winter months ahead.’Wigmore Hall director John Gilhooly
