ILKLEY CHAMBER MUSIC ONLINE
Following the success of our November and December 2020 online series of concerts, we commissioned online concerts from the artists who should have performed our scheduled final four concerts of the 2020/21 season.
We released these on-line on successive Wednesdays from mid-March to early April. They were free password-controlled access for ICC members and by invitation to the local community of music lovers. Only available for a limited period, constituting a ‘mini-Festival’ of musical performances.
These online concerts have now finished however the programme notes, artist biographies and recommended recordings are still available.
The club paid for these recordings as a means to continuing to support artists through these challenging financial times, however we asked that if members or an invited music lover wished, that they donated (say £5 per concert per person viewing) via the available donate buttons to either the Ilkley Concert Club or to Help Musicians.
