The Islington Festival of Music and Art

Islington Festival of Music and Art

Having presented a series of concerts last Summer in public spaces and private gardens in Islington and Highbury, violinist Joana Ly (of the Corran Quartet) and conductor Martin André have created the first Islington Festival of Music and Art 2021. Across four days at the end of July, the festival is presenting concerts in and around Islington.

There will be a lunchtime series at Islington Square, the former Edwardian postal sorting office recently restored as a retail and residential complex. Evening concerts will take place in Christ Church, Highbury and focus on the chamber music of Schubert and his friends, whilst a late night series featuring the music of Bach and his family, including the solo violin music and four choral motets, will be shared between the recently restored Newington Green Meeting House, No20 Arts which is a contemporary art gallery in Islington and The Old Queens Head.

There will be three workshops during the festival, one for string players and two drawing workshops, whilst on the last afternoon there will be an art market in the gardens of Christ Church, Highbury.
