Tait Tuesdays at Home

In support of the Tait Emergency Relief Fund for Australian & New Zealand Artists, we are sharing performances online to you in your home not only to our supporters here in the U.K., but also for our many supporters in Australia and New Zealand. 

Tait Awardees and other young musicians are giving lockdown streaming concert performances from their home to yours in our concert series called TAIT TUESDAYS AT HOME.

Purchase a ticket here on the website and receive a link to the streaming premiere of the concert, or enjoy it any time, as many times as you like, over the following six months from the comfort and safety of your home.

Most concerts start at 7pm GMT (UK), 9pm AEST (Australia) and 8pm NZST (New Zealand). Please ensure you are booking for the correct time zone.

Tickets: GBP£10 General Admission | GBP£8 for Tait Friends. Tickets will be converted to your local currency at checkout.

High Commissioner Series – Melbourne Digital Concert Hall

Sponsored by Voyage Control

We are delighted to announce that we have entered into a partnership with Melbourne Digital Concert Hall to create concerts featuring outstanding Australian and New Zealand talent in the United Kingdom. Since it was formed in March 2020 their figures are truly astonishing: AUD$450,000 earned by 200+ musicians in 13 weeks over 100 recitals. 

With the full, and generous support of the Australian High Commissioner we are filming several concerts to be live streamed to Australia from the Exhibition Hall of the High Commission. Some of which will be broadcast via the MDCH platform. The special MDCH screenings will be available to watch at 11.30am BST / 10.30pm NZST / 8.30pm AEST & as a special dispensation to us they will be re-broadcast at 8.30pm BST.

Hosted by the High Commissioner, His Excellency the Honourable George Brandis QC, the ‘High Commissioner – Australians & New Zealanders in Performance Series’ of online concerts are a major step forward for our Tait Tuesdays at Home series. The High Commissioner series Musical Director is Australian international conductor, Jessica Cottis…we have many exciting plans for future concerts for you. This will be a very special Tait event featuring outstanding performing artists from Australia & New Zealand from Opera, Musical Theatre and the Concert platform.

The event sponsor is Queensland international logistics company Voyage Control and of course the Australian High Commission, London. We can’t thank them enough for placing so much faith in us to make this exciting project a reality.
