From Our Artistic Director
Song in the City takes classical music out of its comfort zone. Through the genre of song, we aim to revolutionise the relationship between classical musicians and their audiences through imaginative concerts, and social projects.
Song in the City is more than your average classical venue. We programme concerts around inventive and often challenging themes, bringing talented singers and pianists to the heart of the Square Mile, in the intimate and beautiful setting of the Hall at St Botolph without Bishopsgate. Our regular FREE concerts take place on Thursday Lunchtime at 1pm (c45 mins). We are also developing a number of social projects. Check out our latest project here. In late 2015 Song in the City released its very first CD: Voices of London: Songs of the big smoke, which is now available to purchase here.
