Thanks to the City Music Foundation's (CMF) partnership with Barts Heritage, the CMF's lunchtime concert series runs regularly in the historic Great Hall of Barts Hospital. 

The Great Hall closed in July for much-needed renovations and the current CMF Concert Series takes place in a series of historic Livery Halls in the City of London. The series launched in July, with the Mikeleiz-Zucchi Duo (accordion and saxophone) in the Pewterers' Hall (built in 1961 to replace one destroyed during the War).

On 13 September 2023, baritone Jonathan Eyers and pianist Roger Vignoles perform a programme of Finzi, Korngold and Loewe at the Armourer's Hall (built in 1839 on the site of the 14th century hall), then in October violinist Emmanuel Coppey and pianist Antoine Préat visit the Barber Surgeon's Hall (built in 1969), in November the Kleio Quartet is in the Apothecaries' Hall (built in the 17th century but incorporating earlier elements), and in December, soprano Claire Ward and pianist Jong Sun Woo are in the Tallow Chandlers' Hall (built in the 17th century).

Other concerts in the series take place at St Martin in the Fields, with pianist Mihai Ritivoiu on 15 September, and soprano Harriet Burns with pianist Michael Pandya on 29 September.
