St John’s Smith Square, London, 8pm
An evening of thoughtful and uplifting new music, spanning a variety of styles and traditions, performed by Héloı̈se Werner (soprano), Kit Downes (organ) and Colin Alexander (cello) who will be spaced at the extremes of the concert hall, surrounding the audience. Each performer will offer around twenty minutes of their own solo works, written since March 2020, and the programme will also feature five short text pieces written especially for the occasion by Errollyn Wallen, Shiva Feshareki, Jasmin Kent Rodgman, Jonathan Cole and Love Ssega.
In this atmospheric setting and glowing acoustic, the concert will bring together some of the most exciting creative voices on the scene. With spatially-distanced trio commissions, dazzling solo soprano works, bright and colourful organ music and peaceful cello compositions, this is a celebration of the importance of music and the arts today.
