Recital – soprano & counter tenor, piano, organ

St Mary-le-Bow Church, Cheapside, London EC2V 6AU

6:15 pm Wednesday 3rd October 2012

 

The fifth annual recital will feature songs performed by Ruth Holton and Nicholas Mitchell, compositions for piano by Alla Sirenko and St Mary le Bow’s magnificent new Tickell organ, on which Assistant Michael Gifkins will open proceedings with the Arbitrators Theme.

 

The wife and husband duo of Ruth Holton (soprano) and Nicholas Mitchell (counter tenor) will perform duets and solos, mainly in a lighter vein, starting with duets by Brahms and Mendelssohn and, after a few numbers from musicals, ending with the Rossini Cat duet.

 

On the piano, one of the Ukraine's leading composers, Alla Sirenko, will present the world première of music created specially for our concert, in an attractive tonal style which the composer describes as magic realism.

 

Assistant Michael Gifkins will bring the evening to a rousing close with Guilmant's march on a theme of Handel – Lift up your heads.

 

The evening will be followed by a wine reception at about 8:00 pm for all those attending.

 

All proceeds from the Recital will be for the benefit of the Worshipful Company of Arbitrators Charitable Trust, through which the Company provides educational and welfare support for those in need, such as bursaries for underprivileged pupils, peacemaker prizes, dispute resolution exam prizes, the Company’s annual mediation competition, the Lord Mayor’s Charity and the St Mary-le- Bow Young Homeless Project.
