C & C Rigg Bequest Classic Music in Historic Venues 2021

The first three Intimate Chamber Recitals for 2021

While our 2020 series had to be postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, in 2021 we are now planning how and where we will present as many of the 2020 series recitals as possible! We start in March, April and May, with three contrasting recitals at Glenfern, the National Trust's 19th century Gothic mansion in East St Kilda, each presented in a hybrid live-stream and/or small socially-distanced live-audience format, twice on the same day. Choose to attend the venue as part of a small socially-distanced audience or enjoy the recital as a live-stream via YouTube from the comfort of your own home!

As more venues become accessible and hopefully covid restrictions can be eased towards the second half of 2021, we look forward to presenting more of the 2020 recital programs with our wonderful guest artists.
