Thanks once again to Cheryl for these
A fantastic night performing at the theatre, followed by a wonderful dinner. Thanks for all who contributed to making tonight happen!
Thanks to soprano Soprano Cheryl Coutinho and Tenor Mario Sofroniou the blog will have lots of pictures coming up, tonight we perform in a very old chapel, and tomorrow we present a educational workshop to students at the Montaniola American School.
After a LONG journey with a stop off night in Riems and a rather over personal and intrusive border sear at Basil…… Meridian Brass and friend have arrived in Lucerne and had a wonderful dinner with Ursula Jones and Duncan Ward at the hotel Schlussel (it means key we are told)
Snazzy isnt it! off we leave to Riems tonight!
Meridian would like to thank Rev Ursula Stocker for her kindness in letting us perform at the Swiss Church. A great time was had by all, and our first performance of Ave Maris Stella with out our dancers worked well. We look forward to leaving next week!
We are performing a last minute date at St Marks Church in St Johns Wood on the 12th of October it would be great to see you there.
As part of our preparations for tour Meridian Brass are performing several ‘warm up concerts’ including a performance at The Swiss Church Covent Garden.
Meridian Brass is rehearsing for their up coming tour to Switzerland. The tour will consist of educational events in Montagnola as well as concerts there and in Morcote and a special performance as the group opening the Lucerne Chamber Festival.
The group will be performing their commission Ave Maris Stellas with just the voice, as our dancers have taken new positions in Ramber Dance Company. The group will be accompanied on the trip by composer Duncan Ward and Ursula Jones, the widow of Philip Jones.
As part of the Celebrating Granger Festival Meridian Brass will be forming a quintet to play all of Percy Graingers music for brass, as well as opening the event with a 14 piece brass ensemble.
