The Ionian Singers and their conductor Timothy Salter will be joined by violist Luba Tunnicliffe and harpist Oliver Wass, members of the Pelléas Ensemble, for a concert on Saturday 25th November in All Saints Church, Rosendale Road. An exciting mix of music arises from the unusual combination of voices and the two instrumentalists who will perform both as a duo and with the choir. The programme will include English music by Bax, Elgar and Salter (his Nocturne for harp, viola and chorus) and Russian works for the duo by Rachmaninov and Prokofiev (movements from Romeo and Juliet). A selection of piano pieces and songs by Debussy, transcribed by Salter, and a rarely heard choral piece by American composer Dominick Argento, his robust setting of Keats’ celebratory poem Hymn to Apollo, complete the programme. 7.30pm at All Saints’ Church, Rosendale Road, London SE21 8LN.  Tickets at the door or in advance from 020 8693 1051, 07950 143 916 or info@ioniansingers.co.uk. Tickets £13.00 (£11 concessions).
