Songwriter Emmy The Great is one of an innovative programme of musical stars performing to live audiences at the Barbican Centre this autumn.
12 concerts will be streamed with a few lucky people able to buy tickets to attend in the auditorium. Artists include Sir Bryn Terfel, Nubya Garcia, Shabaka Hutchings and the Britten Symphonia and The Divine Comedy.
Emmy The Great will be creating two events. On 17 October, she will perform a concert of her latest bilingual album April/Yuet Yam sung in English and Chinese languages. The second event will be HK Soiree, a celebration of the culture of her birthplace, Hong Kong, in the form of a dinner party of invited guests. The evening on 19 October is curated by Emmy and moderated by Jenny Lau.
The limited numbers of people allowed to attend the concerts will all be pre-booked and separated into clusters based on households or bubbles.
Tickets are a modest £20 but all attending must wear face masks and maintain two metre distancing. Not surprisingly, most of the tickets are already sold. It will cost £12.50 to watch from the comfort of home.
