The Trustees are keen to restart our season of concerts just as soon as the public health situation allows it. With the successful ongoing vaccine roll out programme it seems likely that some live musical events will be able to recommence in 2021. Our seasons of orchestral concerts require a lot of planning by the performers as well as by us, and therefore we won’t be able to hold any concerts until autumn 2021 at the earliest. Many local classical music groups are collaborating to enable live events to happen as soon as possible, and after careful consideration the Trustees have decided to make a substantial donation to Lake District Summer Music (LDSM). This donation will help to underwrite the considerable risks being taken by LDSM as they bring together a festival of live classical music events in July/August 2021. We are proud to be able to support the restart of live classical music this summer, and hope to be able to hold our own series of concerts over the winter.
