Merry Christmas from The Hermes Experiment

The Hermes Experiment wishes you all a very Happy Christmas and New Year!

We’ve been very busy in the past two months with performances at the Union Chapel as part of the London Jazz Festival, in St Petersburg, with composer Jethro Cooke (picture below) and at Spitalfields Festival, premiering a beautiful song cycle by composer Josephine Stephenson as well as a new piece that we had devised.

Heartfelt thanks to the wonderful people who made it all happen, in particular Ben Eshmade, Rachel Caccia, AndrĂ© de Ridder, everyone at Spitalfields Festival, our funders for the Russia project – RVW Trust, Sound Ways International New Music Festival and the Future of Russia Foundation, and of course all of you audience members for your continued support!

We have some very exciting announcements to make in the new year, so keep your eyes peeled…

Keep warm, eat lots, and see you all in 2018!
