Wigmore Hall, in London, has this week announced its plan to re-open for in-person and digital performances – from the 13th of September, this year.
The opening series of concerts will include performances by violinists Renaud Capucon, Frank Peter Zimmermann and Leonidas Kavakos, cellists Gautier Capucon and Jean-Guihen Queyras,pianists Sir Andras Schiff and Frank Braley, Quatuor Ebene and the Schumann Quartet.
For safety, each of the concerts will be between 60-90 minutes in length without intermission – and will allow a maximum of 56 live audience members only to sit in socially-distanced pair.
All audience members will also have their temperature taken prior to entering the building – and no printed programs or tickets will be given out.
The Violin Channel will be streaming all performances, from the return series, as part of the VC LIVE Facebook series.
