UPDATE: THIS EVENT HAS MOVED AND WILL BE TAKING PLACE IN THE SHACKLEWELL ARMS, 71 SHACKLEWELL LANE, DALSTON E8 2EB We're delighted that our first monthly event after the summer will be in a NEW VENUE for us, The Shacklewell Arms. Headliner Workers Union Ensemble are an exciting new music ensemble dedicated to performing new works. For example, they've currently joined forces with LSO Soundhub for a special PRS scheme ‘Constructing a Repertoire’, which helps emerging composers gain exposure and have new work performed.
We're very lucky to be having them perform very recent works, including a pre-premiere from Joe Cutler as well as performances of recent work by Larry Polansky, Matthew Shlomowitz, Laurence Crane and Ryan Latimer.
Performing will be:
Oboe – Anna Durance
Saxophone - Ellie Steemson
Double bass – Mercedes Carroll
Percussion - Joley Cragg and Caz Wolfson
With special guest on Piano Yshani Perinpanayagam.
Conductor: Ben Oliver
Kate Symonds-Joy is an emerging young mezzo-soprano, who first came to our attention when she won the annual Nonclassical Battle of the Bands last year with a performance of Berio's Sequenza III. She'll be performing that again, alongside Berberian's incredible Stripsody and more. She'll be accompanied by Yshani Perinpanayagam from the Workers Union Ensemble on piano.
As always the performers will be joined by Nonclassical resident DJs Gabriel Prokofiev + Nwando, spinning the best in contemporary classical, electronica and anything in-between.
