Important Concert Update

It is with great regret that Musica Viva announces the cancellation of Anna Im & Stephen De Pledge​​.

‘Our primary concern is always for the wellbeing of our patrons, artists and staff,’ says Musica Viva CEO Hywel Sims. ‘We’re following government advice closely and have made the difficult decision to cancel this tour.’

You will have an opportunity to receive a refund for your tickets, exchange them for a later performance or donate their value to Musica Viva. We thank you for your understanding and look forward to welcoming you to a concert again soon.
