Right back in March 2020 the Home Concert Club were early adopters of the Zoom concert model.
Since then they have run a monthly series of eclectic concerts: historical wind instruments, classic string quartets, Klesmer musicians, cellists, guitarists, electronic musicians, jazz pianists, classical pianists, violinists, horn players, harpists and flautists…. And while Zoom may not always be technically perfect it offers the delightful opportunity of meeting up with the artists afterwards in a break out room.
A few weeks ago we were able to watch ‘our own’ violinist Madeleine Mitchell, soprano Lucinda Cox and pianist Tom Jesty – and now, next Wednesday the 24th it will be a pianist, a guitarist and a multi-instrumentalist!
Ivo Neame and Ant Law
Ivo Neame (piano) and Ant Law (guitar) are renowned jazz musicians who have performed and recorded with a range of top names in both jazz and classical music.
They will be playing music by jazz legends such as John Coltrane, Charles Mingus and Thelonious Monk as well as their own compositions.
Sophie Westbrooke is a multi-instrumentalist who, at the age of 15 won the woodwind category and reached the concerto final of BBC Young Musician, and has more recently played concertos with BBC orchestras. She will perform a programme titled “Fantasy and Earthliness” exploring her own musical responses to the profoundly unmusical experience of lockdown, with music from the medieval to the 21st century.
The concert is at 8pm on Wednesday 24th February.
The concert is free but the Home Concert Club welcomes donations which allow them to pay some fees, if only modest ones, to their musicians.
