Here at Spitalfields Music HQ, we spend a lot of time asking what you are looking forward to at our Festival. So we thought it was high time, that we began telling you what we are looking forward to this Winter Festival. And sadly, because our lovely Festivals cannot run all year long… I know, it saddens us too, but programming have assured me these things take months of careful planning, we thought we’d let you know what we’re looking forward to in London this Winter.
And to get the ball rolling…
I’m really looking forward to Songs in the Wires. Folk music was a bit of a speciality for me at university, and the mix of composers (Mira Calix, Orlando Gough, Emily Hall & Andy Mellon) at this concert promises to be something truly eclectic and inspiring. The great thing about this concert is not only the mixture of new music it will showcase, but none of the performers are in a traditional band together, and it’s unlikely they will ever tour together, so it’s a one-off, for one night only performance! A chance to see something brand new and special.
And what I’m looking forward to outside of the Festival – not that there is much else better than our Winter Festival- is the Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park. This is my very first Christmas in London, and I’m excited to see how it’s all done- let’s hope we get some snow too!
