ST. ANDREW’S EVENING CONCERTS – FALCON 2019
Saturday the 9th of February;
Saturday the 11th of May;
Saturday the 7th of September; and
Saturday the 9th of November.
To whet your appetite, I am delighted to be able to inform you that, at very short notice, Nick Beever (Counter Tenor) and Richard MacKenzie (Lute) have agreed to perform in the February concert. Short notice caused, unfortunately, by the pianist, Margalida Moll Salord, having developed tendonitis. Hopefully she is going to play for us later in the year.
Nick, an experienced baritone (see the below and attached biographical details), has sung at St. Andrew’s in a lunch-time Fringe Festival concert previously, and having recently begun to sing countertenor, is delighted to present a programme of Lute songs by John Dowland accompanied, on the Lute, by the remarkable Richard MacKenzie (see below and attached also), who will also perform a programme of solo music for lute by Dowland and his contemporaries.
Since the FALCON concerts began in 2012, as you will know, if you have been lucky enough to attend, they have both dazzled and delighted audiences. This next season will be no exception. So if you can pass on the good news encouraging neighbours or friends to come along, we would be hugely grateful.
As always we are extremely grateful for the generosity of these very talented young professionals who come to perform for us. You can reward that generosity by trying to keep the dates clear and then coming to hear them play.
Be prepared to be delighted and entertained, yet again, with rich and rewarding programmes and performances.
