Performing interesting repertoire within the limits of current restrictions remains a challenge, but one to which some musicians are rising in interesting ways. 

On 27 November 2020, three diverse musicians are coming together at St John's Smith Square to perform an evening of thoughtful and uplifting music.  Héloı̈se Werner(soprano), Kit Downes (organ) and Colin Alexander (cello) have solved the conundrum by planning a programme in which the three will be placed spaced at the extremes of the concert hall, surrounding the audience. Each performer will offer around twenty minutes of their own solo works, written over the last six months, and the programme will also feature five short text pieces written especially for the occasion by Errollyn Wallen, Shiva Feshareki, Jasmin Kent Rodgman, Jonathan Cole and Love Ssega.

The result should be a diverse and intriguing concert, which showcases three very different artists as well as giving us a chance to hear music written exactly to suit the circumstances. Further details from St John's Smith Square website.

The concert is part of St John's Smith Square's November programme, a line-up which also includes London Mozart Players and violinist Jonian Ilias Kadesha in Beethoven's Violin Concerto, Bampton Classical Opera in Gluck's one-act opera The Crown conducted by Robert Howarth, London Chamber Orchestra in Schubert's Octet and Louise Farrenc's Nonet, the Young Musicians' Symphony Orchestra in Brahms and much more.
