We will shortly bring you more information on the wonderful artists with whom we have been working recently. They include:
Musician (French Horn) - Anna Drysdale
Anna is a London-based hornplayer, regularly broadcast on Radio 3 with ensembles including National Youth Jazz Orchestra (BBC Proms) and Royal Northern Sinfonia (Sage Gateshead). She is passionate about solo playing, appearing solo for the British Horn Society and with the Amadè Players, and about travel, having recently toured the Baltics with EUYO, Germany with Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and La Scala Milan with Spira Mirabilis.
Musician (Piano) - Jon Musgrave
Jonathan studied at the Royal College of Music and is now active as piano soloist, accompanist and repetiteur. He has performed in venues including the Purcell Room and Wigmore Hall, to critical acclaim. He has a particular attraction to early 20th-century British music, and has edited the manuscripts of Ivor Gurney.
Novelist, Poet, Writer - Steve Tasane
Steve has been poet in residence at Battersea Dogs Home, Hamleys Toy Shop, Maidstone United Football Club and the Dickens 2012 Bicentennial Celebrations. He has two novels published by Walker Books, Blood Donors and Nobody Saw No One, the latter being one of the Guardian Children's Books of the Year. His next novel Child I is being published by Faber in May 2018
Musician (Pipa) - Rosemary Yung
Rosemary honed her skills at the age of 8 and through years of training at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. She has been touring and performing in Europe since 2005. Her music is peaceful and therapeutic, while bringing a subtle twist of Western elements to the classical Chinese style.
Actor, singer - Lou Yates
Lou Yates studied Landscape Architecture at University before becoming a professional actress, like you do. Offered an Equity card to play a lead in a new musical, she has spent the last 25 years getting a pain in the neck and so tries not to look back. Having worked in theatre and television all over the UK , the USA and Europe, she now concentrates on designing gardens in and around SE19. As an accomplished jazz singer she can’t resist a good acoustic. She still has a theatrical agent... Allegedly.
