SOUTH LONDON CONCERT SERIES with Matthew Sear

SOUTH LONDON CONCERT SERIES

"A wonderfully creative idea" - Peter Donohoe, internationally-acclaimed concert pianist

Launched in November 2013, the South London Concert Series is an innovative concert concept which brings professional and amateur musicians together in the same formal concert setting.  With varied programmes focusing on rarely-performed and lesser-known repertoire, the South London Concert Series recreates the atmosphere and ethos of the 19th-century musical salon and provides a friendly and inspirational environment where musicians and music lovers can enjoy quality chamber music in an intimate setting.

The next event in the series is on Friday 03 October 2014 with a concert featuring classical guitarist Matthew Sear.  Matthew will perform a selection of his own compositions from his new album together with works by Dowland, Britten, and Spanish and Latin-American composers.  Supporting artists: Julie Cooper, Muzz Shah, Jennie Barham and Rebecca Singerman-Knight in music by Scarlatti, Bortkiewicz, Rachmaninov and Prokofiev.

"Events blend an appreciation of fine music and music-making with conviviality, and blur the artificial distinctions between professional and amateur” - James Lisney, international concert pianist

The Club's exclusive bar and lounge will be open for the enjoyment of ticketholders.

For further information about the series please contact South London Concert Series.
