St Martin-in-the-Fields will be the London Home of the Monteverdi Choir & Orchestras.

The locale will present three concerts led by Sir John Eliot Gardiner including a performance of Berlioz’s ‘L’Enfance du Christ’ on Dec. 11, 2021. That showcase will star Ann Hallenberg, Lionel Lhote, and William Thomas.

That will be followed by a program of music by Haydn and Mozart on April 23, 2022, and another feature works by Bach, Schütz, and Schein on June 16, 2022.

Additionally, members of the Monteverdi Apprentices Programme will be provided with performance opportunities throughout the season.

“St Martin-in-the-Fields is the ideal venue for historically-inspired performance and choral music, and is, therefore, delighted to welcome the Monteverdi Choir & Orchestras, a truly great body of musicians lead by their visionary founder John Eliot Gardiner. We look forward to many great performances to come, and to welcoming their Apprentices,” Chris Denton, Chief Executive, St Martin-in-the-Fields, stated in a press release.
