“The platform, the canvas upon which you can paint, is so hugely important – and Wigmore Hall just happens to be the most beautiful size and the most beautiful acoustic… the people that come are people like me – they love it, they love music.” Simon Keenlyside
Widely recognised as one of the world’s leading venues, Wigmore Hall is the London home for the world’s most sought-after soloists and chamber musicians. It presents more than 430 concerts per season, including chamber and vocal recitals, jazz, early and contemporary music and choral works. Concertgoers at the Hall have increased by 65% since 2005 to around 200,000 attendances per year, a remarkable success story. Wigmore Hall reaches many millions more through recordings on its award-winning label Wigmore Hall Live and frequent broadcasts on BBC Radio 3 and Sky Arts. It is increasingly influential in the contemporary music scene through commissioning at least 30 new works every season, has an unparalleled reputation for fostering the careers of talented young artists and is committed to reaching communities who do not usually have access to the concert series and its highly regarded and wide-reaching Learning programme engages with over 20,000 people of all ages each year.
Albion Media, appointed as Wigmore Hall’s PR consultancy in September 2014, works to ensure that Wigmore Hall’s rich portfolio of concerts, recordings and projects is widely celebrated in the media.
