Snape Maltings Concert Hall is opening for live performances with an audience from 21 August 2020. Britten Pears Arts is bringing together some of the musicians who would have performed during this year's Aldeburgh Festival and Snape Proms. There will be short concerts on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, with two performances per day.

The first weekend (21-23 August 2020) will feature Chineke! Chamber Ensemble in Florence B Price and Schubert, violinist Tasmin Little and pianist Martin Roscoe in Franck and Brahms, and cellist and pianist siblings Sheku and Isata Kanneh-Mason in Beethoven, Bridge and Rachmaninov. The second weekend will feature performances from Joe Stilgoe, the strings of the London Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Edward Gardner in Tippett, Thomas Ades and Britten's Serenade for tenor, horn and strings with Toby Spence and John Ryan, and accordionist Samuele Telari in Bach's Goldberg Variations.

Every 2pm performance will be 'Pay What You Can', so audiences can hear 45 minutes of music making at a price they feel they can afford, whilst the evening concerts will cost £15.

Full details from the Snape Maltings website.
