London's Wigmore Hall to Reopen to Live Audiences

The historic London venue will open its doors again today to live audiences


For safety, each of the concerts will be between 60-90 minutes in length without intermission, and will allow a maximum of 150 people to sit socially-distanced.

The concerts will also be livestreamed on Wigmore Hall’s website and on The Violin Channel's Facebook.

Upcoming performers include the Doric String Quartet, violinist Jack Liebeck and pianist Katya Apekisheva, pianist Mitsuko Uchida, and choirs Tenebrae, Stile Antico and The Cardinall’s Music.

"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," Wigmore Hall director John Gilhooly said. "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"
