I was fortunate enough to perform in the brand new Tung Auditorium at the University of Liverpool as part of the exclusive staff/student audio test concert on 26 January 2022. I performed Chopin's exquisite Nocturne in E-flat major op. 9/2, the first time one of the new Steinway concert grand pianos was heard in the wonderful new concert hall. Here's to many more performances, with lots of exciting concerts and events to come (https://thetungauditorium.com).
My own performance diary has dates in it once again. Research recordings at the Cobbe Collection are taking place at the end of February and I have a Schubert recital booked for the end of June, more details on the latter will follow nearer the time. In the meantime, all's busy being back in-person at the University of Liverpool and Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. After COVID lockdowns, it's brilliant to be back with students and colleagues making music again.
In other news, Women in Music 2022 planning is underway. This year I'm collaborating with my colleague Andrew Simmons and the event will be in the new Tung Auditorium on Saturday 12 March 2022. We're excited to bring together Myriam Boucher, Monique Charles, Catherine De Bris along with other inspiring women who work in the arts. The day will include live music from the University Chamber Choir, guitarist Eleanor Kelly and University of Liverpool bands. The focus is on careers and employability, it'll be a fantastic chance to network and meet people from across the music industry.
I'll update with more details of concerts and events soon. I hope you enjoy my new website, with photographs from the Tung acoustic test taken by Mark McNulty (www.markmcnulty.co.uk). Take care and please don't hesitate to follow me on social media or get in touch if you'd like any further information.
