  4. London’s new Education Centre & Concert Venue Opening 1st November

Fantastic new concert venue and music education centre to open in Embassy Gardens, London.

Launching on 1st November, leading music charity World Heart Beat is to open its doors to a new state of the art performance and music education centre in the heart of Nine Elms as part of the ongoing expansion of Embassy Gardens. World Heart Beat at Embassy Gardens will mark the first time London has welcomed a new concert hall in the capital since the opening of Kings Place in 2008. As well as the flagship 200-capacity concert hall (designed by Rory Aitkenhead of ARB Architect), the building will enable World Heart Beat to build on its existing track record of providing music education that is accessible to all social groups. The charity will introduce young people to awide variety of music industry skills whilst also providing an unparalleled experience for artists and audiences alike.

World Heart Beat founder Sahana Gero MBE said, "We are honoured to be opening up World Heart Beat Embassy Gardens to add to the vibrancy and excitement around the new Nine Elms area. It is such a privilege to be able to contribute to the community with a state-of-the-art boutique concert hall and a music education facility. Music brings everyone together, it brings joy by linking communities and breaking down political, economic and cultural barriers. We would like to think of World Heart Beat Embassy Gardens as an inspiring place to be, a citadel for musical aspirations and achievement. A welcoming home for all."

World Heart Beat’s mission is to provide opportunities for all, and welcomes any young person interested in learning music. This commitment sees them providing bursaries and free instruments to more than half of the students that come through their door; this will directly benefit thousands of young people, particularly welcoming young those living in challenging circumstances, and on the neighbouring communities on the Patmore, Savona, Carey Gardens, Doddington and Rollo Estates.

 Kickstarting 2023, the new concert hall will open with some of the biggest names in contemporary jazz as well as emerging artists who have undertaken training with World Heart Beat.  Confirmed for the first season are Julian Joseph OBE, jazz trumpeter Byron Wallen, Cuban-born violinist Omar Puente, saxophonist and flautist Tony Kofi, Indian classical musician Kamal Sabri, Russian-born British concert pianist Yevgeny Sudbin, Ben Goldscheider, and piano trio Amatis Trio .The first season of concerts in the venue, taking place from January 2023, will be on sale from early November, the programme taking its inspiration from World Heart Beat’s deep-rooted connections into the global worlds of jazz, contemporary classical, and folk.

Venue launch date: midday Tuesday 1st November 2022
