See great live music events in elegant and interesting locations at the Spitalfields Summer Music Festival.
One of the highlight events in the music calendar, the festival has been delighting audiences now for 39 years, with its broad mixture of musical styles and performers. Associate artists Emily Hall, La Nuova Musica and Shabaka Hutchings have curated a diverse line up.
Composer Hall is set to unveil her intriguing latest work Folie a Deux, or "a madness shared by two". The Renaissance vocal group Stile Antico celebrates its tenth anniversary, while female chorus Women Sing East perform with French-Norwegian visual artist Caroline Bergvall, using site-specific artwork. Composer and saxophonist Hutchings presents Spitalfields Re-Sounded, an unusual project that uses the natural, ambient sounds of the area as music.
With intimate performances in the historic Huguenot houses of the area and a show at the Tower of London, never before has such a diverse range of music been so stylishly presented.
