A blend of classical music and R&B from MOBO-nominated singer, songwriter and cellist

MOBO-nominated singer, songwriter and cellist Ayanna Witter-Johnson makes her mellow mix of classical music and alternative R&B feel completely natural. She is an Emerging Artist in Residence at London’s Southbank Centre, a composer commissioned by the London Symphony Orchestra among others, and her collaborators have included Jason Yarde, Anoushka Shankar, Nitin Sawhney and rapper Akala.

‘Ayanna Witter-Johnson is the artist of our times. She’s a cellist, songwriter and singer and everyone needs to be listening to her right now. She is fire.’ - The Guardian



Arrive early and make yourself comfortable
At the Dome Stage our ‘doors’ open at 4.45pm, and the earlier you arrive, the more choice of seating you will have. There is tiered bleacher seating or you can sit on the grass. We encourage you to bring blankets or cushions to make sure you’re comfortable, and we if you want to sit on the grass, you can bring folding chairs as well.

The Dome Stage provides cover for artists but not audience members. Events will go ahead in the rain except in cases of extreme weather. Do look at the weather forecast and dress appropriately.
