London

Wigmore Hall, one of the world’s great concert halls, specialises in chamber and instrumental music, early music and song.

Having recently celebrated its 115th Birthday, Wigmore Hall is livelier than ever, offering music-making of outstanding quality and an array of activities in the broader community. With its infectious sense of adventure, it consistently captures the public imagination and broadens its audiences’ horizons.

Wigmore Hall’s focus is on great musical works, best experienced with a powerful sense of immediacy. The repertoire extends 250 years on either side of Beethoven (born 1770) – from the Renaissance to contemporary jazz and new commissions from today’s most exciting composers.

Bringing this music to life are the world’s most sought-after soloists and chamber musicians. Wigmore Hall also provides a showcase for exceptional young artists – some making their professional London debuts – and remains an essential platform as their careers flourish.

Discreetly nestled in Central London, the Hall – renowned for its intimacy, crystalline acoustic and beautiful interior complete with an Arts and Crafts cupola above the stage – has a capacity of 552 seats but draws in audiences from far and wide through its enterprising use of digital media and its ambitious Learning programme; these go beyond concert audiences to embrace schools, nurseries, hospitals, community centres and care homes.

Since 2005, the Hall has grown attendance across its entire programme by over 60 percent. All in all, it now presents over 460 concerts each year, selling a total of 200,000 tickets, and stages as many Learning events. Wigmore Hall plays host to a biennial International Song Competition and a triennial International String Quartet Competition, drawing exceptionally talented young musicians from around the world keen to embark on significant recital careers. Wigmore Hall attracts a diverse range of audiences with the lowest ticket for every evening concert in its series priced at £15 or less. Its subsidised ticket scheme for people under 35 goes from strength to strength and free tickets are also offered to young people aged 8-25 through its Chamber Zone initiative in collaboration with CAVATINA Chamber Music Trust.

1133 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY, United States

The legacy of New York City’s Steinway Hall is long and storied.

For a century and a half, the floors of Steinway Hall—which has lived in three distinct locations throughout its existence—have rung with the footsteps of some of the greatest names in piano history. They’ve also welcomed countless lesser-known artists, students, composers, teachers, parents, children, critics, researchers, technicians, and tourists.

Less a physical place than a legendary essence, Steinway Hall is a mecca for anyone who loves music. It is named by pianists as the “centre of the piano universe.”

Royal Choral Society

92 Lots Road, London SW10 0QD, United Kingdom

The Royal Choral Society began its illustrious life as the Royal Albert Hall Choral Society – formed for the opening of the Royal Albert Hall in 1871.

Its inaugural concert was held at the Royal Albert Hall on 8th May 1872. The choir’s name was shortened to The Royal Choral Society (with permission from Queen Victoria) shortly afterwards.

Today, the RCS enjoys maintaining a balance between performances of traditional repertoire and the opportunities to perform in unusual and contrasting events, including leading the singing in Hyde Park at the annual BBC Proms in the Park concert. Other unique events include singing at the launch of the Queen Mary 2, participating in the 25th anniversary for the Falklands conflict, adding our voices to events marking the 70th anniversary of the Dunkirk evacuation and performing at the Royal Festival Hall re-opening in 2007.

The choir recently recorded the Sky Sports ‘idents’ vocals, and we sang the vocals for the specially-composed soundtrack to Channel 5’s fly-on the-wall documentary, Royal Marines: Mission Afghanistan.
