Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

Four singers each give a recital of 30 minutes in the Kohn Foundation International Song Competition, which recognises the song tradition as a whole and requires contestants to sing in at least three languages. It also honours the Lied's place at the heart of the song repertoire and celebrates the Shakespearean stature of Schubert in the genre. The distinguished jury this year consists of Wigmore Hall Director John Gilhooly as Chairman, Bernarda Fink, Jeremy Geffen, Soile Isokoski, Graham Johnson, Malcolm Martineau, Thomas Quasthoff, Richard Stokes, Sarah Walker, William Lyne and Sir Ralph Kohn. (The finale and prize-giving includes an interval supper from 8.20pm-9.30pm. To book, call 20 7258 8292.)
