22 January 2020

 

We are delighted to see the return of our free, lunchtime concerts on Fridays this Spring.

Kettle’s Yard student music programmer Naomi Warburton has curated the latest seriesperformed by some of the best student musicians in Cambridge.

Naomi is a 3rd year undergraduate student studying Music at Clare College, Cambridge. She is former leader of the National Children’s Orchestra and was a member of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain from 2014 – 2017.

Naomi Warburton, Kettle’s Yard Student Music Programmer 2020

Speaking about the series, Naomi said “I aim to showcase the eclecticism of the Cambridge student music scene by programming a recital series that encompasses a wide range of genres, from the 15th century to the present day, whilst extending student involvement to composing as well as performing. Each concert contains some form of student composition, whether this be through improvisation, arrangements, or works inspired by Kettle’s Yard itself.”

The first concert takes place in the House on 24 January. Leo Appel and his band will explore Sephardic music ranging from Spain and the Maghreb to the Middle East, including Jewish composers from the Early Modern period and his own arrangements of traditional Jewish tunes.

Following this will be a a performance by contralto Nina Vinther as she sings a collection of iconic jazz standards with improvised piano accompaniment from Zach Yarrow on 31 January.

All concerts start at 12.15pm and are free, with no booking required. We recommend arriving early to secure a seat.
