Tithebarn Arts Association October 2010
The 2010-2011 season is getting under way. We have three concert evenings
to tell you about, the first being the return visit of the Bella String
Friday 19th November at 7.30p.m.
This quartet presents four members of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic
Orchestra: Kate Richardson (violin), Kate Marsden (violin), Sarah Hill
(viola), and Georgina Aasgaard (cello). This delightful quartet have been
to the Tithebarn several times and always delight the audience with their
choice of music. This time they will perform works by Mozart and Ravel,
with some shorter pieces in between. Georgina is on tour at present with
the Orchestra in China - something very exciting for them.
Friday 17th December at 8p.m. (Note the slightly later time)
This is our Christmas Carol evening - always popular with our audience.
This year we have the pleasure of Cantique - a choir founded in 2007.
They have performed at York Minster, Speke Hall, Liverpool Anglican Cathedral,
Tatton Park, The Orient Express, Castle Howard, Canterbury Cathedral and
many more. Next year they are hoping to perform in St. Paul’s Cathedral.
It sounds an evening to look forward to, helping us to start the Christmas
festival with good music, good company and good refreshments!
Friday 21st January 2011
We welcome back to the Tithebarn Alison Neil who will present Living in
Alison appeared at the Tithebarn while John Hoople was the inspiration
and motivator behind the artists presented at the Barn. She will present
this story of Hildegard of Bingen, who was one of the most remarkable
figures of the Middle Ages. Living in the turbulent and dangerous 12th
Century, she was a musician, healer, artist, visionary, theologian, biographer,
playwright and poet. Beginning as a hermit in a cell in a monastery, she
rose to an unheard-of position for a woman - preaching in cathedrals,
giving advice to an Emperor and criticising the Pope.
Her writing on medicine is now valued by alternative practitioners, her
illustrations are recognised as major works of art, and her music topped
the charts on Classic FM - 850 years after it was written.
About Alison’s previous one-woman plays, critics have said “unmissable
entertainment”, “spellbinding and hugely entertaining”,
“simply a masterpiece of theatre”, “the quality of the
writing and acting are second to none”, and “just wonderful”.
Don’t miss it!
Membership can be renewed at any concert - £5 per person. We rely
on all the funding from membership and concert performances. Artists deserve
an adequate remuneration for their services and we do hope that you will
support us, both with your membership, but above all with your presence
at our concert evenings. We look forward to seeing you there!
