Despite the restrictions imposed by Covid-19, classical music charity Concerts in the West is delighted to be in a position to invite its audiences to enjoy some wonderful classical music online in 18 pre-recorded concerts, giving people a taste of future live concerts.

The online concerts feature a fantastic line-up of top class musicians who were due to play for Concerts in the West audiences this year, had not the pandemic sadly forced their cancellation.

Instead they have refocused their efforts by recording their music especially for the charity in a series of exciting virtual concerts, ranging in length from 30-45 minutes and available from 20 August to 22 October 2020 on Facebook, YouTube and

Catherine Maddocks, the founder and director of Concerts in the West, has been working hard throughout lockdown organising the digital concert series, as well as rebooking this year’s musicians to play in 2021 and even in 2022. So audiences will still have plenty of live performances to look forward to.

Catherine remains positive about future concerts, saying: “It is wonderful to be able to start thinking ahead and we can’t wait to welcome the musicians and our audiences back again to our quirky and individual venues. In the meantime, we hope people enjoy our online series, which is being funded from our own resources. We aren’t selling tickets, so it would be lovely if our audiences could donate to support us and the musicians.”
