MAX (Musician and Artist Exchange) is a network of practitioners drawn from classical music and the arts across the UK, and founded as a response to the impact of the pandemic on the creative sector, a call to action for re-imagination and regeneration.

MAX@245 is their new series of events at 245 Hammersmith Road, London W6 from 18 to 24 October 2021, produced in association with Legal & General Mitsubishi and with counter-tenor Andrew Watts (one of MAX's founded members) as artistic director. The series launches on 18 October 2021 with pianist Joanna Macgregor in It's Time: Music for the Soul with music by Bach, Chopin, Ginastera, Mary Lou Williams, and Piazzolla plus her own For Nina Simone.

Subsequent events include the first appearance from the newly formed Trio Balthasar (Ian Burnside, piano, Michael Foyle, violin, Tim Hugh, cello) in piano trios by Judith Weir, Johannes Brahms and the Irish composer Joan Trimble (1915-2000) who studied with Arthur Benjamin, Herbert Howells and RVW (20/10/21), a showcase from the current young artists of the National Opera Studio (23/10/21), Black Voices, the European female a cappella quintet (23/10/21) and the Pink Singers, Europe's longest running LGBT+ choir (which, incidentally, I directed from 1983 to 1988) in SING - an outdoor jamboree for all the family (24/10/21).

Full details from the MAX website.
