Spitalfields Music Summer Festival
This annual two-week festival features an impressively eclectic programme of musical events – folk, pop, classical, jazz, opera and more – as well as talks, workshops, tours and visual art. Creative use of interesting spaces is a big part of the festival’s ethos, so expect to find interesting sounds in museums, churches, civic halls, corners of Spitalfields Market, historic private homes and even the Tower of London. Associate artists this year are consort La Nuova Musica, composer Emily Hall and composer/saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings. For a full list of events, visit www.spitalfieldsmusic.org.uk/whats-on.
