Old Pauline, JP Ekins’ Classical Concerts from Quarantine

JP Ekins (2000-05) has set up Classical Concerts from Quarantine to continue to bring high quality live classical music to those stuck at home and starved of such stimulation during the Covid 19 lockdown.

Every week on Sunday at 3pm, it is broadcast from his music room in Battersea onto Facebook, YouTube and Instagram. He has received promotion from Classic FM, and when they share his concerts he has had more than 10,000 viewers. He takes requests and so the 45 minute programme each week is normally made up of pieces that members of his audience have requested. Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Chopin, Schubert, Brahms, Liszt are just a few of the composers whose music has been performed so far.

The links required to watch are here, and are the same each week:

These have been fundraising concerts for the NHS, and so far £3,500 of the £10,000 has been raised.
