61. Kitty Whately: Into the Woods

17 October 2021, 20:15 - 21:30


Digital Concert Hall Click to access - watch on demand and view texts & translations

Enjoy the whole festival live online for £165 with a Digital Festival Pass. All events will be available on demand after broadcast until 30th November, so you can catch up at a time which suits you.


All evening concerts this year are performed twice, at 5.30pm and 8.15pm. This 8.15pm performance is a repeat performance of Event 59. This performance will be in-person and livestreamed.

We regret to announce that Nicky Spence has withdrawn from this concert.

Kitty Whately has expanded her programme, and we'll also hear more from Neil Balfour, our 'Emerging Artist', who was already fully integrated into the programme. Although Sondheim remains the prominent focus of the programme, we will also enjoy some Rodgers and Hammerstein, cabaret songs by William Bolcom, and a short group of songs by Aaron Copland, Samuel Barber and Margaret Bonds. We will have the full programme listed here as soon as possible, and look forward to a wonderful concert.
