Brighton Early Music Festival’s Early Music Day virtual concert will be available to view until Saturday.

POLYPHONY will be online until March 28.

A spokesman said: “We have been delighted with the response to our online concert for Early Music Day which was broadcast on YouTube and Facebook on Saturday evening to replace the live event we have had to postpone due to the COVID-19 pandemic. More than 1000 people from across the globe have watched the broadcast, which will remain on the BREMF homepage until this Saturday.”

“We are also appealing to everyone to help us support the musicians who have lost work due to the cancellation of the live event (and many others) by making a donation to our Support Musicians fund.”

A message from the Editor, Gary Shipton:

Thank you for reading this story on our website.

But I also have an urgent plea to make of you.

In order for us to continue to provide high quality local news on this free-to-read site and in print, please purchase a copy of our newspaper as well. With the coronavirus lockdown having a major impact on our town centres and many of our valued advertisers - and consequently the advertising that we receive - we are more reliant than ever on you buying a copy.

Our journalists are highly trained by the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) and our content is independently regulated by IPSO to some of the most rigorous standards anywhere in the world. Our content is universally trusted - as all independent research proves.

As Baroness Barran said in a House of Lords debate this week on the importance of journalists: "Not only are they a trusted source of facts, but they will have a role to play in rallying communities and getting the message across about how we can keep ourselves and our families safe, and protect our NHS. Undoubtedly, they have a critical role."

But being your eyes and ears comes at a price. So we need your support more than ever to buy our newspapers during this crisis. In return we will continue to forensically cover the local news - not only the impact of the virus but all the positive and uplifting news happening in these dark days.

We thank all our readers and advertisers for their understanding and support - and we wish YOU all the best in the coming weeks. Keep safe, and follow the Government advice. Thank you.
