Welcome

Update on our 2021 concert plans

Despite our best efforts to bring live professional music making to Hexham, we have been thwarted time and again by the twists and turns of the Covid-19 pandemic.

We have been working to stage monthly, smaller-scale, socially distanced concerts from January onwards.  Performers pencilled in for these concerts include Bradley Creswick, leader emeritus of the Royal Northern Sinfonia; the Pelléas Ensemble (who were due to give the final concert of our 2019/20 season); the Consone Quartet, current members of the BBC’s New Generation Artist scheme, and the Mithras Piano Trio.

These concerts can, however, happen only if the restrictions of the government’s tier system are relaxed.  Sadly, at the time of writing, it seems inevitable that these restrictions will be tightened, not relaxed, in the new year. The door to re-opening concerts appears to be closing.

As and when it becomes possible to give public concerts again, we will announce them here and on Twitter (@hexhammusic).

In the meantime, best wishes for Christmas and a healthy new year from everyone at the Hexham and District Music Society.
