Local composer and pianist James Woodhall is organising an art exhibition and concert in our church this Saturday 30th April from 7-9pm. Tickets are £10 (£7 students and pensioners) and there will be a retiring collection for 'Aspire Rwanda'. This is a charity that provides urban women living in extreme poverty with the tools to earn a living and improve their quality of life.
The Cold Light Ensemble is about combinations; a jazz trio combined with a string quartet; a concert combined with a contemporary art exhibition. The art-work by Vicky Gee, Margaret Mee, Emma Stanley and Heather Stanley will be on display from 7pm and is for sale. At 7.30pm the Cold Light Ensemble, made up of some of this generation's most dynamic jazz musicians alongside an outstanding string quartet, will perform new music that James has written in response to paintings and photographs. There will also be contemporary dance from the newly formed duo of Charlotte Wood and Kathryn Woodhall.
