Kate Williams has gained a reputation as both a writer and performer, having collaborated with jazz legend Bobby Wellins, Chris Biscoe and Julian Siegel. She has also performed for Interplay Series: Bill Evans and the Impressionists, a jazz concert co-created with conductor William Goodchild.
The Guastalla Quartet is a chamber music group dedicated to the exploration of the string quartet repertoire, from its roots to as-of-yet unwritten works. Formed in 2013, the Quartet brings together Swiss, German and English musicians from three of the finest conservatoires in Europe. Boasting an impressive wealth of experience, between them they have performed at world-famous venues including the Royal Albert Hall, Wigmore Hall and the National Concert Hall of Taiwan.
Award-winning jazz vocalist and lyricist Georgia Mancio’s credits include working with Bobby McFerrin, Ian Shaw, Liane Carroll, Pat Metheny (lyric approval), as well as her own festivals ReVoice! and Hang.
In partnership with Safe Passage.
There will be a cash only bar at this event.
