Presently our programme has had to be suspended due to Covid-19. We are doing our best to bring you an outstanding concert series, but safety and wellbeing will be paramount.
Future bookings from October 2021 include:
Scottish–Egyptian sisters Sarah and Laura Ayoub have been re-booked for Friday 15th October 2021. Signed to Decca Records in partnership with Classic FM, the multi-instrumentalist sisters recorded their debut album with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, which debuted at No.1 in the Official Classical Artist Albums Chart. The duo have performed across the UK, Europe, Middle East and Asia with highlights including appearances at the Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall, London Palladium, The Embassy of Egypt, The Cairo Opera House, and touring with choirmaster Gareth Malone.
Pianist Daniel Ciobanu has been described as offering “a cocktail of serious classical music combined with the lollipops and fireworks of the piano repertoire”. He will be performing for us on Saturday 20th November 2021. (Please mark on your calendar that, because we are dovetailing Daniel’s concert with other performances, this event is on a Saturday rather than our usual Friday).
Talented pianists Duo B!Zart proved so popular the first time round that we have invited them back again. We have booked them for Friday 21st January 2022.
We are also hoping to re-book the Bowker Myslek Duo, comprising Rosie Bowker (flute) and Aleksandra Myslek (piano), both acclaimed and experienced solo performers in their own right.
And we are also re-arranging the visit of Opera Alba, provisionally 11th February 2022. Opera Alba offer a wide-ranging repertoire, from opera’s greatest hits to traditional Scottish favourites and more. Each member of Opera Alba has extensive experience of appearing on the professional operatic stage and on the concert platform. Catriona Clark (soprano), Grace Maria Wain (mezzo-soprano), Connor Smith (tenor), Steven Faughey (baritone) and Derek Clark (piano accompanist) bring together a wealth of virtuosity, experience and personality.
We are also delighted to announce a concert to be supported by the Tunnell Trust in the following season. The Kwon-Lim Duo will bring their piano- and cello-playing talents to MiWK on 11th November 2022.
