This event has now passed: Details from St. James’s Bushey
I’m returning to the tranquillity of St. James’s Bushey, for a recital that spans old and new.

The featured graphic is an underwater escalator. I wanted to express the way music carries us through our lives, through troubled waters.

The recital opens with a fairly new work by London-based composer Robert Ely. Following that, we’ll be surrounded by forlorn mists and threatening oceans, topped off by a jazzy spiritual based on “Wade in the Water”

Bushey is an idyllic semi-rural area near Watford, north London.

Free entry, with a retiring collection.
