City Music Foundation Launches First Music Residency!

City Music Foundation joins The Wallace Collection to invite 5 CMF Artists and ensembles to perform an eclectic programme of lunchtime concerts in the glorious surroundings of the Great Gallery in the Wallace Collection.

As part of the Artistic Mentoring Programme CMF, particularly the Artist Manager, work to expand CMF Artists’ horizons; booking concerts, recording CDs, organising professional photo and video shoots, as well as organising the professional development workshops for the Business Mentoring Programme.

So we thought it would be exciting to expand our own horizons too. This week long residency is a celebration and promotion of the talent CMF encourages. 5 different CMF Artists including a string quartet, accordionist, saxophone quartet, violin and piano duo and classical guitarist will perform a programme curated themselves.

The programme can be seen below, admission is free and we hope to see you all there!
