Wigmore Hall Learning Festival explores a theme of 'Connectivity'.
The aim at the heart of Wigmore Hall Learning is to connect people through music, and this feels vital now more than ever – for all of us. When we face isolation, when we feel lonely, how can music bring us together? In this special festival, we explore and celebrate connectivity in its many forms.
Through live concerts, an online installation and family workshops, the Festival explores music’s power to bring people together in the face of isolation, a plight faced by many over the past twelve months of the pandemic.
The Learning Festival holds an important place in Wigmore Hall’s 120th Anniversary celebrations, as the Hall reopens to in-person audiences for the first time in 2021.
John Gilhooly, Director of Wigmore Hall said:
‘I am particularly looking forward to our Learning Festival, which explores how the pandemic has challenged but also strengthened our sense of community.'
There will be something for everyone at the Festival with events for families, parents/carers and their babies, and people living with dementia, as well as a concert featuring emerging talent, and a special festival finale for all to enjoy.
