|A Rich Programme Of Baroque Violin & Romantic Piano Solos|
Nadia Giliova and Elena Parker in the second of the Music by the Bridge series
This popular 45 minute evening recital series continues with the second concert in the series: an evening of piano, violin and voice. The recital stars the outstanding local talent of guest Soprano Emily Curio (Soprano), Nadia Giliova (violin) and Elena Parker (piano).
Award winning Russian born pianist Nadia Giliova has performed in many significant venues and festivals in London and across the country. These included highly successful solo performances at prestigious concert halls including the Wigmore Hall.
Elena Parker was born in Russia and graduated as a violin teacher and performer in 1988 from the Music College of Cheboksary, Chuvash Republic, Russia. She has been teaching violin to children for more than 20 years and currently has a thriving Suzuki class at All Saints school in Fulham.
Music By The Bridge brings together members of local community on the second Friday of each month to listen to a rich variety of musical performers from within the local area and beyond.
Many of the musicians performing in the recital series are pursuing professional musical careers and Music by The Bridge offers a great opportunity to see and hear these local musicians as they embark on their very first concert tours.
Musicians participating in the series are also supporting the development of the renowned music programme at All Saints church by performing free of charge. The programme allows choral scholars to train and perform under expert musical direction and for many the Friday Recital series offers valuable performing experience.
Reverend Penny Seabrook, pictured left, who leads the committee in the development of the new programme confirms:
Drinks will be available before the service and local restaurant Bloom are offering all those attending Music By The Bridge a discount on their evening main meal menu. Simply take your programme to Bloom after the concert.
