Upcoming Concerts

City Music Foundation Gala Concert

14th June, 2023

7pm, The Great Hall, Barts Heritage

Programme: "900 Years of Music and Medicine". As City Music Foundation 2021 artists, we will be performing as part of this cabaret-style entertainment exploring a miscellany of connections between medical practice, doctors and music, and including three new commissions specially for this event which celebrates 900 years since the founding of Barts Hospital. The evening, which will raise funds for City Music Foundation and Barts Heritage, will portray doctors both real and fictional and tell medical anecdotes through history with both gravity and humour. This musical anthology will be woven together by CMF Patron and actor Simon Callow into a unique narrative, and we will hear music from 18 CMF Artists.

“Celestial Music did the Gods Inspire”, the launch event of the Hesperi Voices, celebrates the ‘Battle of the Organs’ at London’s Temple Church. In partnership with the Temple Music Foundation, and made possible by a grant from the Continuo Foundation, we’ll present a sparkling programme of music by the winning organists, Henry Purcell and John Blow, weaved around Charles Burney’s historical narrative of the battle itself. Highlights include selections from Purcell’s posthumous works, published by his widow Frances at Temple Change, and Blow’s rarely performed verse anthems, performed by twelve singers and an expanded band of musicians.
