The Academy of St Martin in the Fields has announced a second concert series from the church of St Martin in the Fields. Running from 11 March 2021 until August, there will be a monthly evening orchestral concert plus lunchtime chamber music concerts. The series will begin online and then move to live audiences when possible. Every evening orchestral programme will be filmed and available on a pay-to-view basis with catch up for 30 days afterwards.

As well as well-known works, concerts will include contemporary works too with music by Sally Beamish, Thea Musgrave, John Woolrich, Julian Anderson, Avner Dorman, Tunde Jegede, Jonny Greenwood, and Nainita Desai, and the series opens with a programme which mixes Brahms and Bach with James MacMillan. John Butt will direct a programme in April which mixes Matthew Locke, Purcell and Handel with Errollyn Wallen. Other guests include mandolin player Avi Avital, soprano Sophie Bevan and conductor Ryan Wigglesworth (whose programme includes one of his own works).

Full details from the Academy of St Martin in the Fields' website.
