Event Details

City Music Foundation returns to The Wallace Collection for our 4th annual Summer Residency (22nd – 26th July). Featuring six CMF Artists, 2019 sees the residency expanded beyond the popular free lunchtime recitals to include a children’s concert, a performance for dementia sufferers, and an evening concert centered around Schubert’s ‘Trout Quintet’ with guest performer Sholto Kynoch.

2018 CMF Artist Tom Millar presents an intimate ‘Discover the Wallace’ concert. ‘Discover the Wallace’ is the Wallace Collection’s programme for people living with the early stages of dementia and their friends and families. Join us from 2pm for tea and an opportunity to gently explore the Collection with the museum’s specialist educators. From 3pm, taking you on a trip down memory lane, Tom’s programme will include hits of yesteryear, with songs such as ‘Autumn Leaves’ and ‘I’ll Be Seeing You’. You’ll be free to sing along, tap your feet, or simply just listen. Free, but booking essential at community@wallacecollection.org or call 020 3876 3164
