For the last lunchtime concert of the season, we are joined by highly acclaimed soprano Juliet Fraser, who will, coinciding with the release of her new album Spilled out from tangles, present works for voice and tape.
World-famous for our Library, every concert will also respond to themes suggested by our collections and will feature pop-up displays of original historical materials. You can expect anything from holiday getaways of the past to the lives of 1930s East End anti-fascists to be covered.
The concerts run for no more than 40 minutes, so you can bring your sandwiches along to enjoy while you listen to world-class performers - then be back at your desk before your lunch hour is up.
