Details of a concert and an exhibition

I thought you might like to hear about a couple of events that I am involved in at the beginning of June. I’ll tell you about the second one first, if you see what I mean …

On 13th June Vox Cordis, a choir in which I sing, is taking part in a concert given to raise money towards a fund set up in memory of Gloria Trevisan and Marco Gottardi, two young Italian architects who tragically died in the Grenfell Tower fire; Gloria had just started work in my brother’s architectural firm, a promising career in front of her, and Marco was working in a practice elsewhere.  The fund aims to sponsor young graduates to come from Italy for a couple of months in order to learn more about conservation architecture; the first one is expected to arrive this autumn.  The concert has a strongly Italian flavour, as do the canapes at the reception at Fulham Palace afterwards …

The concert will take place on Wednesday, 13th June at 7pm in All Saints Fulham, SW6 3LA (just north of Putney Bridge). The programme will include Monteverdi  Beatus Virâ , Purcell Dido’s Lamentâ and the Vivaldi Gloria.

Tickets are £20, or £45 including Reception (Students are £10, or £25 including Reception).  They are available from www.ticketsource.co.uk/date/485001 and on the door (or you could always ring me on 0208 870 7167!)  More information about the fund can be found at www.peregrine-bryant.co.uk (GeM).

The Exhibition I mentioned is taking place from 2-10 June, as part of the Saint Stephen’s Festival of Arts and Faith, in St. Stephen’s Church, Gloucester Road, SW7 4RL  It runs concurrently with lunchtime and evening concerts and I will be exhibiting some of my paintings, many of which have musicians as their subject matter.  You can find details of the concerts on St. Stephen’s website and there are also some brochures at the back of St. Mary’s Church.
