Pimlico Lunchtime Concerts
The combination of a lunchtime concert and a trip to Tate Britain makes Pimlico an excellent place to spend a Friday afternoon.
The Pimlico Lunchtime Concerts were started in 2019 by Richard Gowers, the Director of Music at St Saviour's Church. Lunchtime concerts take place at 1:15pm on Fridays and last 45 minutes.
They are currently suspended during the Coronavirus lockdown period.
So far, concerts have included students and graduates of the leading London conservatoires: Royal Academy of Music, Royal College of Music, Guildhall and Trinity Laban. Programmes have offered a mixture of vocal, chamber and solo instrumental music.
The audience has successfully grown over time, with a mixture of enthusiastic regular concert-goers from the local area and tourists from the many Pimlico hotels. Concerts are free to attend, but a £5 donation is encouraged for those who are able.
If you are a musician or group looking for a performance opportunity, these concerts are an excellent chance to try out a new programme in front of an open-minded audience. Contact Richard Gowers (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information. Concerts are likely to resume in September 2020, or else when the church is allowed to reopen.
