The Academy of St Martin in the Fields will be giving us a chance to dig into the archives as it will be presenting free monthly concerts from its archives from 28 June. Each concert will premiere on the orchestra’s YouTube channel and Facebook at 19:00 BST on the last Sunday of the month and will be available for two weeks.

For the first concert, the orchestra's 60th Anniversary Gala will be re-broadcast, giving us a chance to hear Sally Beamish's Hover, which is dedicated to the memory of Sir Neville Marriner [see my interview with Sally, talking about the commission and her close links to the orchestra], plus music by Mozart and Mendelssohn directed by the orchestra's current musical director Joshua Bell.

Future concerts includes Sir Neville Marriner's 90th birthday celebration concert with music by Elgar and Saint-Saens. As well as these concerts, the Academy of St Martin in the Fields is sharing weekly interviews with members of the orchestra as well as some ‘at home’ performances. Explore past content and keep up to date with new videos on the orchestra’s YouTube channel, Facebook and Twitter feed.
