After several years of trying, we’ve finally been selected for Making Music‘s “Adopt a Composer” scheme!
And the composer we’ve been paired with is…
Laura is an award-winning classical guitarist and composer who, amongst many other accomplishments, was hand-picked by Julian Bream to give the Julian Bream Trust concerts at Wigmore Hall in 2015 and 2017. She was the first guitarist to graduate from the world-renowned Yehudi Menuhin School, where she now teaches.
More information about her can be found on her website.
Gavin Roberts’ project “Song in the City” needs your help funding a CD
Gavin was our accompanist in years past and his brilliant project “Song in the City” is hoping to release a world premiere CD. Here’s the blurb:
This is a fantastic opportunity to capture a very special song cycle of brand new London themed songs for four voices and piano commissioned by Song in the City and to make these widely available. The CD, a world premiere recording, will be launched at a special event on the 8th December 2015. This project is directed by our very own Gavin Roberts, Artistic Director of Song in the City and features Jennifer Witton (Soprano), Beth Debruslais (Mezzo Soprano), Nick Allen (Tenor), Piran Legg (Bass-Baritone) and Gavin Roberts (Piano).
Visit the crowdfunding site here and watch our campaign video. We have plenty of rewards on offer so please pledge today!
A couple of us have already pledged and are looking forward to receiving their CDs… IF enough people pledge as well!
