Since January 2017 I have been acting as artistic director in an exciting new series of chamber music concerts held in the church of St Mary the Virgin, Monkseaton.
There are five concerts in this series, held between January and May this year. Miranda Wright's fabulous singers appeared on January 25th: David Murray's Great Piano Show wagon February 25th. Stunning soprano Laurie Ashworth will appear on March 25th. The internationally acclaimed Heath Quartet appear on April 22nd, and Royal Northern Sinfonia leader extraordinaire appears on May 7th. This is a stunning series and I'm very proud to be associated with it, bringing as it does classical music of the highest standards right into the centre of Whitley Bay, where I have lived and worked now for many years.
