Join us on Sunday, 8 May 2022, 3pm, at St John the Evangelist, Upper Norwood, SE19 2RX for our first Musical Rainbow Project Recital. Imma Setiadi and Nigel Clayton (piano four-hands) will present a piano duet programme, joined by Diana Krasovska (narrator).
The inspiration behind the theme of this concert is ‘walking’. Yes, our day-to-day walk in the street, to our workplace, to the stations, the hustle bustle of our daily life which often leaves us little time for reflection. What happens if we take the day-to-day noise away and then go for a walk? What will we see and hear? Do we know where are we going?
Imma, Nigel and Diana will take you on a musical journey through piano duet music by Bernstein, Poulenc, Schubert, Fauré, Debussy, Rachmaninoff, Leroy Anderson, Dvorak and Brahms. This will be interspersed with specially written narration, pictures, and soundscapes, to bring alive both an exterior and interior walk.
We are grateful to the support of Royal Philharmonic Society Enterprise Fund in association with the Harriet’s Trust and to Fr John Pritchard (Vicar) at St John the Evangelist Upper Norwood Church for hosting the concert. St John the Evangelist is a magnificent space with beautiful architecture. It also allows us to present the concert in an unusual seating arrangement.
Entry by donation at the door, in aid of the refurbishment of the church and the church’s organ.
This event will be recorded for private documentation/archiving purposes.
