Welcome to Loki Music

Early music specialists in South West London

 

Loki Music organises concerts and education events involving historically informed music, working with experienced musicians and teachers to run performances, coaching sessions and workshops.

Our principal local venues are 

Lovekyn Chapel [Kingston Grammar School - opposite main School building - London Road, Kingston upon Thames KT2 6PY];

- Garrick's Temple to Shakespeare, Garrick's Lawn, Hampton [very near TW12 2EA]

Concerts in Kingston and Hampton also feature delicious home-baked food made by Catherine Evans at affordable prices, between £1 and £2.50.

Other local venues include All Saints' Church and the Rose Theatre in Kingston Marketplace; White Lodge in Richmond Park; and Orleans House Gallery. We work regularly with Kingston Arts and with the International Youth Arts Festival as well as local schools. 

 

Loki Music is happy to collaborate with other organisations, including the Wild Goose Events in London,  the Society of Recorder Players and Polyphony Down The Pub as well as useful people including Dan Evans, assistant chef and piano tuner.

 

Our concerts are informal and welcoming, featuring both young and established musicians, and recent ventures include events in other parts of London - at the Tea House Theatre in Vauxhall and at Forty Hall in Enfield, for example, and also the replica Golden Hinde in Southwark. Loki Music is expanding its activities in Suffolk and other parts of East Anglia, and those with links to the area may be interested in concerts and workshops hosted by the Eastern Early Music Forum. The main Summer venue in Suffolk is the Tudor Walpole Old Chapel. Loki Music is run by William Summers [CV]
