The Highgate International Chamber Music Festival brings together distinguished chamber musicians from around the world for a celebration of chamber music in venues around Highgate. In the intimate setting of Highgate’s beautiful churches, a stone’s throw from Hampstead Heath, HICMF presents varied programmes with masterworks of the repertoire set alongside lesser-known gems, delivered with fresh, energised performances by world-class musicians performing alongside one another in combinations not heard anywhere else.
This short free concert is part of HCMF’s wider outreach and education work in partnership with In Harmony Lambeth to bring chamber music into the study programme for the children at In Harmony Lambeth (IHL). IHL was launched in 2009 inspired by the Venezuelan El Sistema Programme. It is primarily a social action programme which encourages the pursuit of musical excellence to enrich the lives of children, young people, families and the wider community. In this free concert, children attending IHL will participate alongside members of the cello ensemble Cellophony and cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason.
