‘Off the Page’ at Guildhall

Well, I did it! I gave a fully improvised concert, along with some superb colleagues from Guildhall- Adrian Brendel, Philippa Davies, David Dolan and Rosie Bowker. Such a privilege to sing with such excellent musicians. We definitely had some fun, with audience members giving us ideas to spark off different ideas and forms. I am finding it fascinating to discover the impact which improvisation has on the performing artist. Speaking for myself, I feel even more present and even more immersed in my performance than when I am singing a pre-composed work. Such a joy to discover this and how this filters into my regular performances.
