Director of Wigmore Hall, John Gilhooly, today announces, ‘In response to the current state of the pandemic, we have taken the decision to pause most of the activity at Wigmore Hall for the time being. However, we are able to share with you a number of exciting new events, filmed since early January, with some very fine artists and ensembles. We will be broadcasting these previously unseen concerts over the next month, as we all contend with more time in our homes during lockdown. We hope that these events bring joy and comfort, especially to those feeling isolated right now. The health and safety of our staff and performers is our priority, and we hope to add additional events, once this acute phase of the pandemic has lessened in severity. The support of our patrons helps us to pay musicians their full fees, even when the Hall itself is empty. All concerts will remain online for 30 days from the original broadcast date.’
