St John’s Smith Square reopens for four recorded concerts9:28, 21st July 2020
After four months of closure St John’s Smith Square is opening its doors for a series of four socially distanced concerts which explore the development of fugal forms in music. Each concert will be recorded, released online and available to access free of charge.
The concerts will be released at 8pm each Tuesday in August on the SJSS website (www.sjss.org.uk) and on SJSS’s social media channels. The artists performing are The Gesualdo Six, David Titterington, The Revolutionary Drawing Room and Julian Jacobson.
The series forms part of SJSS’s Digital Exchange Project – a series of workshops, concerts and online advice developed by SJSS during lockdown.
Richard Heason, director of SJSS, said: ‘Over recent weeks we have started to welcome musicians back to St John’s Smith Square to rehearse and record, with appropriate and rigorous health and safety measures. It is wonderful, with these events, to see concerts begin to return to this iconic concert hall and we hope these are the first steps towards welcoming our dearly missed audiences back to St John’s.’
