Concerts to return to St Martin-in-the-Fields
For the last few months St Martin-in-the-Fields and the independent ensembles who have been performing concerts in the iconic venue for the last 3 decades, have been working together to find a way to resume musical activity in the church once conditions allow.
59 concerts involving 8 ensembles and over 200 musicians that were due to take place between March and the end of August 2020 were cancelled. We are delighted to announce that these concerts will now take place later in 2021. We are thrilled to be working together to bring hope and lift spirits during and after these dark months and we look forward to a brighter future together.
Details of the rescheduled concerts will be released soon.
