This concert will be taking place online via Facebook Live.
Follow us on a journey through nine concerts taking in a range of musical genres, from the traditional to the unexpected. Over the course of the series, you will hear three different instruments presented in three different ways each.
The concerts will be streamed live from our Facebook page at 13:00 on the day of the concert, with details of their programme available on this webpage.
Music brings people together and offers comfort in difficult times, and our lunchtime concerts were first created as a way of raising morale during the Second World War. Learn more about the history of our lunchtime concerts and the legacy of Dame Myra Hess through our online gallery.
