Wigmore Hall Learning 21st Birthday

with Nicola Benedetti violin; Alexei Grynyuk piano


  • Nicola Benedetti violin
  • Alexei Grynyuk piano

In the decade since winning the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition, Nicola Benedetti has matured into one of the finest British artists of her generation, in demand worldwide as concerto soloist and respected as a passionate advocate for music education. This recital with her regular chamber music partner, the Russian pianist Alexei Grynyuk, promises to be a highlight of the Wigmore Hall Chamber Music Season.

Nicola Benedetti’s heartfelt dedication to music education is well known. She has been working with Wigmore Hall Learning this Season in primary schools and will give a concert for pupils aged 7 to 11 at the Hall on 21 January. Her recital three days later stands as a fundraising gala for Wigmore Hall Learning, which turns 21 this year.

Join us to celebrate the remarkable success of Wigmore Hall’s internationally acclaimed education and community programme. With over 400 workshops and events each season, at the Hall as well as in schools, hospitals, care homes and community settings, Wigmore Hall Learning reaches a strikingly diverse community, from the babies who attend our For Crying Out Loud! concerts to people living with dementia, whose lives are touched by the pioneering Music for Life programme.
