Between the (y)Ears 2019

In the intervening years between editions of London Ear Festival, there are smaller events that go under the name of Between the (y)Ears.

In 2019 Between the (y)Ears will consist of a series of three concert of contemporary music.  The first, given by the young Ret Frem Ensemble, reflects London Ear’s policy of supporting and encouraging younger, emerging professionals.

The second concert sees a return to The Cello Factory of a group that was one of the highlights of London Ear 2018:  The Neo Quartet of Gdansk, Poland.  They are joined by the sensational composer/performer Alwynne Pritchard who has also appeared in past editions of London Ear Festival.

The third concert is given by two celebrated London-based performers: Anna Noakes (flute), one of the first ever performers at London Ear in 2013, and Gabriella dall’Olio (harp), who has performed at the festival several times, and is also on its advisory board. The programme will include the world premiere of a new work by London Ear’s Artistic Director – Gwyn Pritchard.

All three concerts will take place in
The Cello Factory
33-34 Cornwall Road, Waterloo, London SE1 8TJ

Admission for each concert: £10 (Concessions £7). Tickets available at the door.
