The Secret Garden returns

The Secret Garden

Faced last Summer with the cancellation of all indoor concerts, cellist Chris Grist (founder and artistic director of London Concertante) opened up his garden and arranged a series of outdoor concerts. The experimental series of five concerts became nine sold-out events, performed by members of London Concertante as well as guests including a jazz trio and a comedy troupe, along with a bar and a fine food menu.

The Secret Garden is returning again this Summer with 15 events from 30 July to 12 September 2021, with events which mix classical concerts with theatre, comedy and jazz. Performers include London Concertante in programmes from Baroque to Mozart and Jean Francaix with clarinettist Michael Collins, to Schubert's String Quintet and Strauss' Metamorphosen, as well as visitors such as the Brodsky Quartet in Bach, Britten and Beethoven, the Kings Singers, food critic and jazz pianist Jay Rayner, comedians Sara Pascoe and Angela Barnes, jazz musicians Jason Rebello and Tim Garland, the Sam Leak Trio, and the Pip Utton Theatre Company.

And there will be food from an Afghan fusion barbecue!
