Charlotte Bray Portrait Concert

Chamber music by Charlotte Bray & Howard Skempton

Tickets for this event are no longer available online. Remaining tickets can be purchased in cash at the venue.

This concert is a rare opportunity to hear a concert of chamber music devoted mainly to that of Berlin based composer Charlotte Bray.

On the programme are her environmentally inspired quartet ‘Zustande’ , and the Shakespearean inspired trio ‘Those Secret Eyes’, with advanced CSYM student pianists playing side-by-side with professional chamber musicians Henrietta Hill (viola), Rose Hinton (violin), and Andrew Power (cello).

Also on the programme are some of Charlotte’s superb and evocative works for solo instrument, namely ‘In Black Light’ for solo viola, ‘On the Other Shore’ for solo cello, and, ‘Beyond’ for solo violin.

At the other end of the programme there will be one or two performances of chamber works featuring some of our accomplished young 7 year old pianists, as they join forces with Andrew and Rose to play music by Howard Skempton and Colin Matthews.

COVID remains prevalent in the UK and WRCH has a duty to ensure all those entering the building – including audiences, performers, volunteers, and staff – are kept safe. Whilst domestic government COVID restrictions in England have now been removed, we must all continue to take steps to minimise the transmission of COVID and other respiratory communicable diseases.

West Road is well equipped to mitigate against transmission through use of ventilation and provision of sanitiser throughout the building.

  • Although not currently mandated, the government suggests that you continue to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces where you may come into contact with people you do not normally meet.
  • Sanitiser dispensers are located in the foyer and around the building. All visitors are encouraged to use these on arrival and exit.
  • The concert hall auditorium has a mechanical ventilation system providing predominantly fresh air. We recommend wearing an additional layer in cooler weather!
  • The foyer and ancillary spaces have CO2 monitors to indicate air quality and natural ventilation that users can adjust.
