Delighted I have been selected again this year to perform with the WOW Orchestra 2018 for Women of the World Festival in London this weekend, as part of the Southbank Centre’s Women in Classical Music initiative.
Since 2011, this orchestra has been part of Southbank Centre’s WOW festival, a week of talks, debates, performance and activism celebrating women and girls from around the world. A highlight for the WOW Orchestra is a performance at Royal Festival Hall as part of Mirth Control – an electrifying night of comedy and music performed and inspired by women and hosted by Sandi Toksvig.
This annual WOW highlight is a fun-filled evening where Sandi takes inspiration from pioneering women who made iconic and empowering music for their generation and those that followed.
Featuring Josette Bushell-Mingo with extracts from her show Nina: A Story About Me and Nina Simone, performing the iconic musician and activist’s music, along with Alice Russell and Zara McFarlane.
Plus the WOW Orchestra led by guest conductor Alice Farnham, Voicelab Choir led by Jessie Maryon Davies and much more!
An exciting weekend ahead!!
