The Assembly Room is blessed with a Bechstein grand piano, which is currently on loan to the Guildford Institute, and the folk club is blessed with having Andy Johnson as one of its resident musicians. It is Andy's regular performances of piano arrangements of traditional tunes and airs, to welcome the audience as they arrive, that have inspired this very special evening of English Folksong arranged by the likes of Vaughan Williams, Britten etc, for piano and soprano voice.
We are delighted to welcome singer Joanna Bywater and pianist Matthew Rickard to to folk club to perform a recital of English Folksong arrangements. Joanna sings as a lyric soprano for concert and operatic work, directs the Constanza Chorus as well as other choirs and orchestras, is vocal coach to the Farnham Youth Choir and singing teacher at Bedales School and the Royal School, Surrey. Matthew read Music at the University of Surrey, where he studied the piano with Clive Williamson. He pursued his postgraduate studies at the Royal Academy of Music, studying with Michael Dussek and Graeme Humphrey, specialising in piano accompaniment.
As you will see from their websites Joanna and Matthew are extremely busy performing, conducting, teaching and recording so we are very grateful to them for agreeing to come together to devise this very special evening for the club. We will give full details of the programme for the evening as soon as it is available.
