Reimagining music in church post Covid-19

Interviews with composers and musicians on:

1. Congregational focus - Tuesday 8 September

In the opening event of our 'Reimagining music in church post COVID-19 ' series, Andrew Earis (Director of Music at St Martin’s), Gabriella Noble (Choral Conducting Fellow at St Martin’s) and Michael Haslam (Director of Music at St James’ Church, Piccadilly) explore the challenges of building congregational and community music-making in worship, as churches begin to reopen and explore what the ‘new normal’ might mean.

2. Composer focus - Tuesday 15 September

In the second event in our series, Andrew Earis (Director of Music at St Martin’s), Will Todd (composer) and Peter Moger (composer and liturgist, and former Canon Precentor of York Minster) explore what composing music for church and worship might mean in the next stage of the pandemic, and in the long term future post COVID-19.

3. Educational Choir focus - Tuesday 29 September

Through the pandemic, St Martin-in-the-Fields was one of the few churches to run its choral scholarship programme without interruption, albeit ‘virtually’, providing valuable support for its singers through these unprecedented times. Andrew Earis (DoM at SMITF), Tom Daggett (Organ Outreach Fellow at St Paul’s Cathedral, and Director of Choir Church at St George in the East) and Alisa Campbell (choral scholar at St Martin-in-the-Fields) explore church music education during the COVID-19 pandemic, and what we might learn for the future.

4. Voluntary Choir focus - Tuesday 6 October
