Devised in partnership with Spitalfields Music, our CLoSer concert series is based around bitesized, informal concert experiences, designed to appeal to those who like their live music to be intimate and relaxed (and who enjoy a glass of wine while listening!) Each concert has a specific musical focus with guest artists including Mercury Prize nominee Gwilym Simcock, as well as CLS Principal Conductors Stephen Layton and Michael Collins. While short in length, the concerts still present audiences with challenging and interesting repertoire with 'talking' programme notes throughout the performance. For those who wish to linger post concert, the bar remains open, and there is the chance to mingle with CLS musicians too.


Read our CLoSer FAQs for more information on the series.
