Concerts restarting : 2021 and 2022 concert programme

Mike Denham

7 Apr 2021 – Per the Covid-19 regulations the key date we are watching for concerts is “Step 4 – no earlier than 21 June” when “All legal limits removed on mixing will be removed and the last sectors to remain closed, such as nightclubs, will reopen. Large events can take place” so concerts should be possible. Therefore we intend to open with two short-notice impromptus that might or might not go ahead and might even be on different dates depending on events, and then aim to run our normal pattern during the Autumn 2021 season, and then a full programme for 2022.

Cape Town born pianist and composer Philip Clouts’ South African roots have inspired a voyage of discovery. In this solo setting Philip will be presenting his work in an intimate context, highlighting the wide variety of moods in the music, and will also be playing some ‘jazz standards’.
