Wigmore Hall New Autumn Series includes 100 concerts livestreamed from 13 September - 21 December 2020

'It is a huge joy to announce that we will have 100 concerts between now and Christmas. Alongside the core chamber and song repertoire I have encouraged artists to explore 20th and 21st century composers and a diversity of repertoire throughout the series.'

John Gilhooly, Director
  • Over 200 artists confirmed, of which over two-thirds are UK born or UK based, underlining Wigmore Hall’s efforts to get artists earning again.
