A series of contemporary and classical music performances are being livestreamed direct from Brighton Dome’s Concert Hall as part of Brighton Festival 2021.
Music fans who missed out on in-person tickets or prefer to watch from home can enjoy renowned musicians from as little as £5 from the comfort of their own sofa. Folk singer Eliza Carthy and her father Martin present East, a specially crafted evening of musical and poetic works inspired by eastern England’s seaboard with guest appearances by actress Miranda Richardson and singer songwriter Wilko Johnson. And black-bearded diva Le Gateau Chocolat returns to the stage for the first time since lockdown with a one-night-only cabaret performance with songs selected for Brighton Festival.
Classical lunchtime concerts from the UK’s rising artists include the pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason and Glyndebourne’s Jerwood Young Artists. Evening performances include an intimate and audacious new take on Monterverdi’s Vespers from dynamic ensemble La Nuova Musica and works by Mendelssohn, Ireland, Tchaikovsky and the contemporary American composer Jessie Montgomery are performed by the Strings of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
Brighton Festival 2021 features nearly 100 events, performances and installations, both as specially commissioned online projects, as livestreams and across multiple outdoor and indoor locations extending from Brighton to Worthing until 31 May. The festival’s guest director is British and Ethiopian poet, playwright and broadcaster, Lemn Sissay MBE.
