Workshop: Discover Rock Violin with Chris Haigh
Chris Haigh, author of the Schott title Discovering Rock Violin will presents a workshop based on the book, in two parts: the first for beginners to rock violin playing, the second extending the techniques for those with some experience (or those who got through part one.)
According to Chris, the workshop will cover any style of violin playing in a band context where there are no written-out parts (like arrangements for backing players), where players have to create or improvise their own instrumental lines. He aims to short-cut the process of fitting the violin in with vocals and other band instruments. The workshop will help you carve out your own working style, whether your context is pop, goth, alt, metal or whatever.
Amplification and effects will be discussed but please bring a NORMAL violin for the workshop. You don't need Chris's book to participate but it will be on special offer at £10.00 for participants!
Tickets: £5 for either part or both.

Piano Recital - Anthony Green
Anthony Green with another concert of contemporary and some repertoire works. He starts with Haydn's Sonata No.58 in C and ends with Beethoven's Waldstein Sonata Op.53. In a sequel to his concert last May he plays the second half of Nick Ray's Symphony in the composer's piano arrangement, and the second half of his own John Cowper Powys Symphony (movements 4-6) arranged for solo piano. Anthony does not know when a full orchestral performance will happen, so this may be the only chance for some time to assess this impressive work. There will also be in the programme Charles Ives' Three Page Sonata and Skalkottas' Reverie in the Old Style and Reverie in the New Style.
Tickets: £10 full, £7 concessions on the door or in advance from 0207 534 0710
