Our series begins with the acclaimed pianist Melvyn Tan on Wednesday 19 September 7.45pm. Originating from Singapore, Tan moved to London to study at the Yehudi Menuhin School and the Royal College Of Music. Building an international reputation through a series of ground-breaking performances at many of the leading concert halls around the world, Tan’s reputation of his diverse skill and versatility has continued to grow. Proving that Tan is an accessible artist outside of the music world, he performed live during London Fashion Week for a Jasper Conran catwalk show thus increasing his reputation further. Tan will kick off the season with a selection of mesmerising pieces from his repertoire. Tickets £15 - £20 with concessions available. On Thursday 22 November 7.45pm, the Rhodes Piano Trio bring their talent and experience to The Brewhouse stage. Formed in 2003 at the Royal Northern College Of Music, the trio went on to win all of the RNCM’s major chamber music prizes. In 2010 they were selected for representation by the Young Classical Artists Trust and in the last six years they have performed and toured at venues and festivals worldwide. The trio have been the resident ensemble for the One To Watch series in the 2011/2012 season at the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music in Singapore and Chamber Music Fellows at the Guildhall School Of Music & Drama. Tickets £12 - £15 with concessions available. The series returns on Wednesday 13 February 7.45pm with Catrin Finch, the former Royal Harpist to H.R.H The Prince of Wales. Finch was inspired to learn the harp aged five and achieved the highest mark in the UK for her grade VIII exam at nine years old demonstrating exceptional talent from a young age. She has collaborated with composers Karl Jenkins, John Rutter and Howard Goodall and performed with Welsh bass-baritone, Bryn Terfel. Having performed extensively throughout the world, Finch’s evident passion and talent are not to be missed at The Brewhouse where she will be playing Bach’s masterpiece Goldberg Variations along with other solo pieces for the harp. Tickets £13.50 - £18.50 with concessions available. Finally, to close the season on Thursday 14 March 7.45pm, we welcome Guy Johnston and the Navarra Quartet. Named the leading British cellist of his generation, Guy Johnston collaborates with the award winning Navarra Quartet who won the Outstanding Young Artist Award in 2008 at the MIDEM Classique Awards in Cannes. The combined forces of such tremendous talents join our stage to perform pieces from Mozart, Brahms and Schubert. Tickets £15 - £20 with concessions available.
