The famous Wigmore Hall in London presents concerts by some of the world's most sought-after soloists and chamber musicians.

It is also committed to reaching communities who would otherwise not have access to the concert series.  The Hall's highly regarded and wide-reaching Community and Education programme engages with over 15,000 people of all ages, through projects in nurseries, schools, hospitals, and day-care centres as well as ongoing work with families, music students and concert related projects.
The Chamber Tots in the Community programme provides musical experience for young children attending Children’s Centres and Reception classes in various London boroughs.  Dr Susan Young of the School of Education and Lifelong Learning has been commissioned by Wigmore Hall Chamber Tots programme to carry out research in to the effectiveness of the programme and to support the team in developing and extending the programme in to future years.
