Following in the footsteps of other venues such as Wigmore Hall, London's Cadogan Hall has announced that it will reopen following the UK lockdown for a series of live-streamed concerts and recording sessions.


Scheduled events and concerts include a live-streamed concert by the English Chamber Orchestra and 'TURN UP!', a charity performance featuring stars from Black West End and Broadway, responding to the Black Lives Matter movement.

The English Chamber Orchestra will also record an upcoming album from the Cadogan Hall before its concert on 8 July. The orchestra will be joined by violinists Stephanie Gonley, who will direct a performance of Mozart's Symphony No. 9, and Ofer Falk, who will perform the solo in Vaughan Williams's The Lark Ascending. The performance will be broadcast on Cadogan Hall's YouTube channel at 7.30pm.

'TURN UP!' will feature live band performances, readings, poetry and speeches, and will be livestreamed on 10, 11 and 12 July, with the final broadcast captioned for deaf and hard-of-hearing audiences.

All performers will comply with social distancing guidelines.
