St John’s Smith Square
Canon and Invention
Tuesday 4 August 2020 at 8.00 PM
Join us online for our performance as part of St John’s Smith Square’s Digital Exchange project. Our programme explores the roots of fugue in musical canons from Italy, featuring works by Ockeghem, Josquin and Mouton. Broadcast details will be published via our social media channels.
We recorded this concert live last week to an audience of 25 people. This was a trial organised by DCMS and thankfully the findings were positive. Although the return to live performance with audiences has been delayed, our event was a useful stepping stone on the road to recovery.
