The Barbican has announced an autumn series of shows.

The season will kick off with bass-baritone Bryn Terfel performing music by Bach, Finzi and Ivor Novello with the Britten Sinfonia. On 22 October, the Kanneh-Mason family will perform their first London concert together. Following that, on 1 November, Antonio Pappano will be joined by tenor Ian Bostridge, soprano Dame Sarah Connolly and the Carducci Quartet. 

Other highlights include Emmy The Great, The Divine Comedy, Nubya Garcia, Richard Dawson and a celebration of Pharoah Sanders.

Sir Nicholas Kenyon, managing director, The Barbican said: ‘This is a significant step forward for us and we’re delighted to expand our offer through the autumn, gradually opening up our venues and providing space for artists and communities to connect.

‘Our autumn programme features concerts from some of the most exciting musicians working today, a podcast series of conversations between some of our leading creative minds, alongside a whole range of work by new and established artists.’

Less than a sixth of the seats in the hall will be available due to social distancing requirements. Around 300 tickets will be on sale for £20 each, and tickets to watch the live stream (or on-demand within a 48-hour window) will be £12.50.
