For our first encore concert of 2018, we are delighted to be hosting Brighton Youth Orchestra String Ensemble at the Basement with a programme to appeal to all ages, so bring friends and family and help us launch our concert season!

The ensemble will perform a selection of Finzi songs with Megan Turvey as soloist. Until recently Megan was a member of the National Youth Choir of Great Britain, and has sung solo many times including some Taverner with the String Ensemble. Megan is also a fine saxophonist, leads Brighton Youth Orchestra, and is working on an art foundation course at Greater Brighton Metropolitan College.

In our celebration of singing, the programme will also include the gorgeous aria from the beginning of Act 3 in Mozart’s marriage of Figaro. Our aria singers are Nell Parry, principal oboe for Brighton Youth Orchestra and Melanie Rattue, first violinist for Brighton Youth Orchestra but for whom voice is her principal instrument which she studies at Junior Trinity College of Music.

Other works in the programme will be an eclectic mixture of pieces, with the added twist of seeing the ensemble perform from memory and sometimes with the lights dimmed right down. This first happened some years ago when the ensemble was playing in Dieppe music school and the lights failed.... It proved to be an atmospheric performance, so we'll be recreating a little of that magic at The Basement.
