For this special evening, internationally-renowned classical guitarist Craig Ogden will be joined by Live Music Now musicians past and present. Opening with soprano Laura Curry singing Gounod’s exhilarating aria Je Veux Vivre, followed by virtuosic solo flute repertoire performed by Nicola Woodward, the first half will finish with “indecently talented” folk duo The Drystones.

The concert’s second half features Craig Ogden performing a programme including Albeniz, John Dowland and Gary Ryan. One of the most exciting artists of his generation, Craig regularly appears as soloist and chamber musician at major venues and collaborates with many of the UK’s top artists and ensembles, this season including concerto performances with the BBC Concert Orchestra, Hallé, London Philharmonic and many others.

The concert is raising support for Live Music Now. The charity was founded in 1977 by violinist Yehudi Menuhin to realise his twin ambitions of nurturing young musicians at the outset of their careers, and bringing the joy of live music to all. Each year, LMN musicians deliver thousands of music workshops for audiences including people in hospital, those living with dementia, and children with special educational needs, in Bristol and throughout the UK. Since it started, Live Music Now has given over 75,000 interactive music sessions for over three million people.

“My years spent performing on Live Music Now provided a rich and invaluable start to my career. It was a privilege to have the opportunity to perform for people who were unable to attend formal concerts, and the many memories I have of my LMN days will stay with me forever.” Craig Ogden, LMN musician, 1992-1999
