Beth Reed was a wonderful colleague and friend – someone who I miss very much! We performed together over many years in the Lyric Piano Trio. Eppie Churcher and myself are organising this memorial concert to celebrate Beth’s life on Sunday 22 April, 7.30pm, in the Magdalen College School Hall. No tickets are required – donations are invited towards Cancer Research UK.
I am so pleased to report that at the Sarabandes for Sanctuary concert, we were able to raise £553.90 for Asylum Welcome. I am very grateful for the generous support and donations from the wonderful audience.
I have uploaded some excerpts of the performance to youtube. Please visit my Audio page for the link.
Coral will be giving a concert for Asylum Welcome on Thursday 6th April at St Barnabas Church, Jericho, Oxford, at 7.30pm. The music includes all six Sarabandes for solo cello by J.S. Bach as well as other innovative works for cello: Giovanni Sollima’s Lamentatio, Karen Tanaka’s Song of Songs, and Arvo Pärt’s Fratres. The programme is an exploration of spirituality in music with free admission. Donations will be invited for Oxford charity Asylum Welcome.
