You can find out more about the venues in current or recent use via the Links page.

 

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 Halll 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]

 

 

What we do

Early music!

Loki Music is run from South West London by me - William Summers. My principal instruments are flute and recorder, and I also play 'windcap' instruments such as the crumhorn as well as singing in amateur choirs.

I hold regular rehearsals for a flexible consort of recorder players, mainly dealing with music from the high Renaissance and the Baroque periods. Players must be confident in holding a line of music by themselves, although parts are sometimes doubled and music is provided in advance where possible. The atmosphere is friendly, and enquiries are welcome. Individual lessons are also offered [at all levels]. Rehearsals and lessons currently take place on Wednesdays [dates below], and times for individual lessons may change in response to demand. Charges per player for 2018 are £15 for consort rehearsals and £30 for individual lessons. Atendance is by arrangement.
