LIFEM22 is almost upon us and after the virtual offering of 2020 and the 2021 hybrid we are preparing with confidence for a full-blown event this year, welcoming performers, exhibitors and early music enthusiasts from the world over.
The festival will run between 9-12 November beginning with an opening concert featuring The Brook Street Band, including a world premiere by Nitin Sawhney. Our concert line-up is completed by Solomon's Knot, Charlotte Schneider, PIVA (featuring the first public performance of a new work by Toby Young) and Spanish ensemble Taracea, making their debut appearance in the UK. St Michael’s Church will also be the venue for festival evensong on 12th November and throughout all three days Blackheath Concert Halls will rejoice in the sight and sound of a full array of instrument makers. We will update this site on a regular basis with more details as they become available. In the meantime our unforgettable 2021 concerts are still available at Marquee TV.
Best wishes from me and the whole LIFEM team.
Chris Butler, Festival Director
