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. Every week we also ask our performers to respond to themes suggested by the collections in our world famous Library.
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.

Meet the Artists
Wise Woman is an all-female vocal group hailing from England and Wales. Layering lush harmonies and textures, their sound embodies a wide range of styles including folk, blues, jazz and musical theatre. They are inspired by everyday treasures unearthed in museum collections, wild East Anglian walks and the secret lives of real, imagined and forgotten women of history.
Wise Woman is made up of Anna Pool, Lydia Bell and Charlotte Vaughan. They studied Composing, Jazz and Singing respectively at The Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
You can find out more about them on Instagram @wisewomanmusic or on their individual websites.
