Having performed its programme Music & Renewal live and streamed at the Bloomsbury Festival in October, NW Live Arts will be performing the programme again at a live concert on 11 December 2020 at St James' Church, Islington and the concert will be available on-line from 16 December 2020. 

Music & Renewal explores different concepts of renewal in a dynamic mix of music from Europe, India and South America, and the programme will feature the Alkyona String Quartet and tabla player Kuljit Bhamra MBE. The performance marks Bhamra's first performance with NW Live Arts since it was recently announced that he is to become the organisation's patron.

The Music & Renewal programme includes quartets by Mozart, Ravel and Bartok alongside new works for string quartet and percussion by Kuljit Bhamra and South American percussionist Andres Ticino. The concert also features improvisations from Ticino and Bhamra, music for solo cello by Ligeti and a new quartet by Caroline Heslop, artistic director of NW Live Arts. There will also be video art created by participants of a community workshop led by artist, Antonia Attwood.
