CLoSer: Debussy, Copland and Dance on 22 September at Village Underground marks the official start of our new RE:Imagine series, and we couldn’t be more excited. Whether you’re new to the CLoSer concerts or a CLoSer veteran, we have put together a few things you might like to know. Don’t forget you can still get your hands on some tickets from Spitalfields Music Box Office, or by calling 020 7377 1362.

About the event

This CLoSer event is a celebration of music and dance, and we’re thrilled to be joined by two fabulous dancers, who will be performing new interpretations of Debussy’s Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune with choreography by Tony Adigun. Our CLoSer series is a wonderful way to unwind with great music and great company in an informal and intimate setting. Check out the great blog our Chief Executive penned this week that for a fantastic insight into the CLoSer atmosphere.
