Wigmore Hall new season announced

In the face of uncertainty about live performances in the UK, Wigmore Hall has announced its new season of 100 concerts starting on 13 September, including several Maestro Arts musicians. They will all be live-streamed for free and broadcast on BBC Radio 3, in front of restricted audiences when permitted, starting with 10 per cent capacity of 56 seats.

John Gilhooly, Director of Wigmore Hall said: 'We are very pleased to include so many local artists, despite these very tough circumstances for Wigmore Hall. Alongside the core chamber and song repertoire I have encouraged artists to explore 20th- and 21st-century composers and a diversity of repertoire throughout the series... Concerts will go ahead with or without an audience and the schedule is subject to change given the uncertainty of travel and the possibility of local and international lockdowns and quarantine problems.'
