Helen Porter - Unexpected Song

Friday 4th June 2021
7pm
£10

Unexpected Song is the new solo show from singer/pianist Helen Porter. Written and composed during the pandemic, it reflects on a variety of themes, from the seemingly insignificant details of daily life to some of the more troubling questions in the world today. Following on from her previous show Constant As The World, Helen has created a collection of songs to reflect the times. Our perspective may have changed, but life goes on – we lose our keys, fall in love, lean on friends and take comfort in the smallest of pleasures.

Helen is a deeply engaging performer, delivering her thoughtful new show with finely tuned vocals and seemingly effortless piano playing.

Resonance: Best of British – A Musical Stay-cation

Saturday 10th July 2021
7pm
£10

Resonance presents music by pillars of the English music establishment alongside others who were considered outsiders. The lives and music of all those featured add richness to the tales told in the tapestry of 20th Century British Chamber Music.

We have curated a recital of chamber works by familiar friends such as Frank Bridge, Gerald Finzi and Vaughan Williams, with pieces by other Stanford students from the Royal College of Music Rebecca Clarke and Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, as well as an epic programmatic offering by self-taught Felix Harold White. Harking back to a musical tradition heavily inspired by folk music, the whole programme paints vivid pictures in the imagination, and sheds some light on those often over-looked in the English Music canon.
