Workshops/Festivals 2017: (UK) London Festival of Baroque Music 2017 Festival Launch Announcement

Contributed by admin on Nov 16, 2016

"We’re delighted to announce that one of our very exciting Future Baroque artists, soprano Rowan Pierce, will perform for us at our Festival Launch on Monday 23 January. She will be joined by members of the Medici Ensemble, with whom she made such a great impression on the audience at their lunchtime concert at the 2015 Festival. The Launch event will take place at the East India Club, 16 St James's Square, St. James's, London SW1Y 4LH. We're immensely grateful to Philip and Christine Miles for hosting this event. ...

Since appearing at the 2015 Festival (and returning in 2016), Rowan has been attracting quite a lot of interest, winning prizes in several competitions and performing both in the UK and abroad with conductors such as Richard Egarr, Laurence Cummings and Robert Hollingworth. One of her most recent London performances was in Purcell’s The Fairy Queen with the Academy of Ancient Music at the Barbican, and earlier this year the BBC Music Magazine picked her out as one of their ‘Rising Stars’.
 
For those of you who have already joined our Friends Scheme as Rome Friends or above, there is no need to do anything as you will be receiving your formal invitations very soon. However, if you have not yet joined, there is still time to do so.  " ...
