Late Music has been programming concerts of new music in York for over 20 years.
Late Music currently programmes 8 evening concerts a year — on the first Saturday of the month March-October — plus 4 lunchtime concerts across the season.
In the welcoming setting of York Unitarian Chapel, a typical Late Music concert is an informal, family friendly, social occasion for concert lovers and new listeners alike. Every evening concert features a pre-concert interview and questions with a featured composer and/or performer, giving audiences the chance to engage directly with artists over a glass of complimentary wine/juice.
Late Music has a strong, proud history of programming and commissioning internationally renowned composers. Recent recipients of major commissions include Master of the Queen’s Music Judith Weir, Michael Finnissy, Nicola LeFanu, Howard Skempton, Frederic Rzewski, and Samantha Fernando in collaboration with poet Lemn Sissay.
