The Circle has launched its
75th Anniversary Brochure for the Season 2016-2017
HARRY THE PIANO
‘You can’t be a pianist and not be a fan’ Iain Burnside BBC Radio 3
‘His phenomenal talent, charm and wit are a delight’ Stephen Fry
Harry the Piano, one of most gifted improvising pianists in the world, takes the stage at The Capitol on Sunday 25th September at 7.30pm to launch the Horsham Music Circle’s 75th Anniversary Season. Harry’s solo cabaret show was ‘born’ at a Music Circle concert at the Capitol in 1996. At the time it was considered a risk for an established chamber music society to venture into a new genre but it was a runaway success. Since then Harry has returned to us many times to great acclaim and his extraordinary talent has taken him worldwide with solo cabaret shows in the Albert Hall, Moulin Rouge, Birmingham Symphony Hall and the Manasterly Palace Cairo. He has headlined at dozens of festivals from Barbados to Adelaide and on the maiden voyage of QM2.
The Music Circle is delighted to be working in association with The Capitol to present this unique artist. Expect an evening of exceptional entertainment, formidable technique and superb musicianship encompassing great improvisations around familiar themes from all genres. Come prepared with requests for any tune in any style. We look forward to seeing a full house for this improvising genius.
The Music Circle is thrilled to celebrate its 75th anniversary year with an exciting programme of performances by the most outstanding musicians on the concert circuit today. You will recognise some familiar names, together with newcomers to our series. We hope you will be inspired by these wonderful artists and we look forward to seeing our long-standing members and welcoming many new ones.
We are delighted to be returning to The Capitol for two concerts, starting with the improviser extraordinaire Harry the Piano who launches our season, and ending with the renowned international soprano Dame Felicity Lott with pianist Graham Johnson in recital. We move to Christ’s Hospital for a richly varied chamber music programme to be given by local professionals, The Ellis Ensemble with tenor Mark Bradbury. The Drill Hall is the venue for our young artists; accordion player Bartosz Glowacki with cellist Corentin Chassard bring an innovative programme for this unusual duo and come sponsored by The Countess of Munster Musical Trust; the Chinese pianist Ji Liu, selected by the Young Concert Artists Trust in 2013, has been tipped as a major talent and ‘one to watch‘. Also at The Drill Hall, the ever popular New Year Viennese Concert returns with a new line-up of artists for an afternoon of much loved melodies. At St Mark’s Church, Alessandra Testai with Robin Jeffrey explore the natural partnership of voice and lute with a focus on the varied musical cultures of the Mediterranean. Horsham’s lovely historic Parish Church will be the venue for our 75th Anniversary concert. A spectacular programme has been devised by London Concertante with three world-class soloists Crispian Steele-Perkins, Daniel Bates and Charlotte Barbour-Condini.
