Clare Teal: The Great British Songbook

Exultate Singers: Mozart ‘Great’ Mass in C minor

Gasworks Choir

Positive Psychology Responses to Depression: The Bristol Happiness Lectures 2010

Award-winning singer-songwriter and Radio 2 presenter Clare Teal is without doubt one of the most talented and uniquely exhilarating jazz singers the UK has produced, delivering a jazz and classic-pop repertoire with a distinctive fizz that comes from both technical sophistication and an unequivocal love of the material. After many years performing the American standards of yesteryear, Clare brings her powerful jazz credentials to a stunning new show celebrating the Great British songbook, including Campbell and Connolly’s Try A Little Tenderness, Charlie Chaplin’s Smile and Ewan MacColl’s The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face. With a smile in her velvety, triumphantly powerful voice, bright and propulsive arrangements by an outrageously lively band, and a big-heartedness perfectly offset by her bluff Yorkshire wit, this is first class entertainment from the new ‘Queen of Swing’.

St George’s Bristol would like to thank its major supporters:

The Garfield Weston Foundation

David Ogden conductor Exultate Chamber Orchestra Mhairi Lawson soprano Rebecca Outram soprano Mark Chaundy tenor Martin Le Poidevin baritone Mozart Mass in C minor ‘The Great’ Lauridsen Midwinter Songs Corigliano Fern Hill

Dee Jarlett and Alison Orbaum directors Regular performers at St George’s, this hugely popular 150-strong community choir return for their spring concert. The members of Gasworks like to surprise the audience with their diverse repertoire encompassing pop, folk, jazz, classical and world music. Expect an uplifting and heart-warming hour of entertainment with many original arrangements.

Mozart’s ‘Great’ Mass in C Minor is packed with virtuosic solo and choral writing, beautiful, soaring melodies, florid arias, and extraordinary choral movements. Midwinter Songs by Morten Lauridsen (best known for his setting of O Magnum Mysterium) is a work of towering lyricism, setting deeply moving words by Robert Graves. Fern Hill, John Corigliano’s setting of the words of Dylan Thomas, is distinctively American, tuneful and romantic, full of colour and expression.

One in two people are likely to suffer depression at some point in their lives and £400 million is spent each year on anti-depressants. Yet Positive Psychology, the scientific study of human thriving, has identified self-help interventions that increase resilience in ways that both prevent and treat depression. In this fifth annual Bristol Happiness Lecture, Miriam Akhtar, one of Britain’s pioneering positive psychologists, Dr Phil Hammond, medical doctor, writer, broadcaster and noted comedian and commentator on health issues (Have I Got News For You, The News Quiz), and Dr Chris Johnstone, addictions specialist, present an informative and enjoyable evening of lectures focusing on effective self-help approaches to strengthening positive mood and wellbeing.

Juan Martín Flamenco Dance Ensemble

Brandon Hill Chamber Orchestra

Mim Grey

‘Passionate flamenco guaranteed to grab you by the seat of your pants and set your hair on fire.’ straight no chaser

Kevin Griffiths conductor Charlie Siem violin

Singer/songwriter Mim Grey is a remarkable country-folk-pop siren whose music resonates with a seductive playfulness and lyrical grace, evoking the sounds of James Taylor and Joni Mitchell.

Schubert ‘Rosamunde’ Overture Sibelius Violin Concerto in D minor Beethoven Symphony No 7 in A Dynamic violin virtuoso Charlie Siem’s powerful performance of Sibelius’ only concerto, the ambitious, brilliant Violin Concerto, is flanked by Schubert’s darkly graceful Overture to the ‘Rosamunde’ ballet and Beethoven’s revolutionary and exhilarating Seventh. ‘A wonderful tone ... spacious and beautiful. Charlie Siem [is] a violinist who’s really going places.’ classic fm magazine

©Nick White

A giant of the flamenco guitar tradition, Juan Martín’s mesmerising playing forms the centrepiece of this deeply sensual showcase, which breathes with the fierce energy of pure flamenco (with a dash of Moorish spice).

Having cut her teeth at Ronnie Scott’s and the 606 club, and performed and recorded with music luminaries Paul McCartney, Dave Stewart, Kylie Minogue, Morcheeba, Mantronix and many others, Mim brings her intoxicatingly sultry voice and flawless six-piece band to an electrifying live performance of songs from her long-awaited debut album ‘Grey Matters’.

With a Spanish frenzy of dazzling and frenetic instrumental solos, keening ‘cante jondo’ vocals and awe-inspiring footwork, this brilliant troupe, working at the height of its powers, holds you spellbound.

Sun Life Stanshawe Band Reunion Concert

Jane Taylor and special guests

ZUM: Gypsy Tango Inferno

Dr Roy Newsome musical director

Bristol’s own, Jane Taylor is no ordinary singer-songwriter, rather a determinedly independent artist with an intangible show-stealing magic in her voice and an exceptional song-writing wanderlust that flits from delicate Tori Amos-style balladry to sharp Joni Mitchell boho-jazz-folk, mixed with a shot of Damien Rice and The Sundays.

Intriguingly beautiful music ‘thieved’ from the four corners of the earth, and played in inappropriate, but oh so fun, styles.

Saint-Saëns (arr Hargreaves) French Military March Burns My Love is Like a Red Red Rose Phil Harper New Commission Hal David and Burt Bacharach (arr Morris) Alfie And works by Beroliz, Irving Berlin, Fauré, Massenet, Boëllmann, Bourgeois, Lloyd, Langford and Dvo¨rák The Sun Life Stanshawe Band was formed in 1968 by a small group of amateur brass musicians from Bristol. The band reached national and world award winning standards, performing across the UK and Europe, with regular appearances on BBC Radio 2 and 3, BBC 2’s ‘Best of Brass’ and Granada TV’s ‘Band of the Year’ programmes. The band sadly disbanded in 1997, but come together again for this reunion concert, performing a varied programme of classical and original light music to celebrate their 29 year history.

£14(£12); £12(£10); £10(£8)

From the melting pot of cosmopolitan London, ZUM’s ground-breaking world fusion weaves folk music traditions from around the globe into exhilarating foot-stompers. Seamlessly encompassing the unbuttoned passion of Argentinean ‘new tango’, the fire and brilliance of Eastern European Gypsy fiddle music, sophisticated jazz threads, sizzling Appalachian bluegrass, heart-stoppingly haunting Celtic laments, explosively powerful Arabic melodies, plus everything in between, ZUM is even greater than its parts, a quirky quintet whose unbridled diversity and madcap gaiety is both captivating and intoxicating.

Having received a flurry of euphoric reviews for her albums ‘Montpelier’ and ‘Compass’, and found incredible support from BBC Radio 2’s Johnnie Walker and Bob Harris, Jane brings a spine-tingling (and surprising) spectacle to the glorious acoustic of St George’s. Forged from songs of penetrating brilliance, a transfixing voice, battered guitar and shimmering Steinway, soaring choir, beautifully haunting brass band and gently whispering classical strings, this is one hell of a show.

‘Triumphant ... tremendous fun.’ financial times

Zoran Jancic piano

Bristol Concert Orchestra with You-Chiung Lin piano

Bristol Schools Chamber Choir

Bristol Music Club Orchestra

People of Note Community Choir: 10th Anniversary Concert

Bristol Classical Players: Brahms Cycle lV

The critically acclaimed virtuoso pianist Zoran Janci´c has entranced audiences worldwide with the magnificent dynamism and exquisite sensitivity of his playing. As Professor of Piano Studies at the Academy of Music in Sarajevo, he was one of the last staff members to continue teaching, despite the life threatening conditions of the Bosnian War, and, at great personal risk, gave performances during the siege of Sarajevo until he left the city in exile in the spring of 1993.

Stefan Hofkes conductor You-Chiung Lin piano

Bristol Schools Senior Chamber Choir David Ogden conductor Martin Le Poidevin baritone Guy Withers tenor The Dorian Chamber Orchestra

For Refugee Week, Janci´c performs a programme of beautifully brilliant, pioneering works that pay tribute to Chopin, another composer / pianist in exile (Andante Spianato and Grande Polonaise Op 22); to J N Hummel, who had an enormous influence on Chopin with his distinctive, ground breaking romantic compositions; and to Jan Václav Voríšek, who invented the impromptu.

Barber First Essay for Orchestra Rachmaninov Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini Gershwin Lullaby for Strings Gershwin An American in Paris Copland Four Dance Episodes from ‘Rodeo’ The BCO cross the Atlantic for an evening of New World musical fireworks with Gershwin’s show stopping American In Paris, a riotous blur of imagery, and Copland’s blockbustingly exuberant Rodeo. The sensational Taiwanese pianist You-Chiung Lin’s elegant virtuosity finds an ideal vehicle in Rachmaninov’s masterful Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, rich in delicate detail, the slow variation one of the most loved pieces in the repertoire.

Fauré Requiem Fauré Cantique de Jean Racine Stanford Excerpts from ‘Songs of the Fleet’ Delibes Flower Duet from ‘Lakmé’ To hear the 40 young, talented singers of Bristol Schools Chamber Choir, with superb orchestral accompaniment, perform Fauré’s enduring and powerful Requiem in the exquisite intimacy of St George’s is to discover it afresh. The youthful voices then showcase the lighter side of the choral repertoire with folk songs, spirituals and jazz arrangements, alongside the contemplative, well-loved Cantique de Jean Racine.

William Goodchild conductor Emil Huckle-Kleve violin

Nickomo and Rasullah Clarke directors, conductors

Tom Gauterin conductor Julia Hwang violin

Grieg ‘Peer Gynt’ Suite No 1 Op 46 Dvo¨rák Violin Concerto Op 53 in A minor Sibelius Symphony No 5 Op 82 in E flat major

The People of Note Community Choir loves sharing the communal pleasure of musicmaking and never lets you forget that singing is about having a good time. Open to anyone who loves to sing, there are no auditions, no formal musical training is required, and all the music is taught by ear.

Beethoven Coriolan Overture Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in E minor Brahms Symphony No 4 in E minor

The BMCO’s summer concert opens with Grieg’s spectacular first Orchestral Suite from the incidental music to Henrik Ibsen’s Peer Gynt and concludes with a superbly judged performance of Sibelius’s masterful, majestic 5th Symphony, commissioned in honour of the composer’s 50th Birthday. Between the two, the excellent Bristol violinist Emil Huckle-Kleve, string semi-finalist in the BBC’s Young Musician of the Year competition in 2005, joins the Orchestra for a sparkling performance of Dvo¨rák’s beloved, richly lyrical concerto.

Ten years old this year, but still flush with the sheer chutzpah of what it does, People of Note blows out the candles with gusto with an exhilarating a cappella night showcasing its greatest hits from across the years as well as brand new songs. With 100-plus singers giving 100%, this is a joyous celebration of the human voice in all its diversity.

‘A heartrending evening of stunning virtuosity. It is very rare to witness such remarkable talent in one so young.’ the daily mail

The ebullient conductor Tom Gauterin leads the Bristol Classical Players in the fourth and final concert of its magisterial Brahms cycle, moving from Beethoven’s sombre Coriolan Overture to arrive at the tragic power of Brahms’s mighty Fourth Symphony. And teenage violin virtuoso Julia Hwang marries her blistering technique to the orchestra’s assured form in a fresh, urgent account of Mendelssohn’s beautiful Violin Concerto, described by one critic as the ‘Eve’ to the Beethoven concerto’s ‘Adam’.

The Draca Folk Day

National Youth Jazz Orchestra of Scotland

Gene Watson

A St George’s Bristol Fundraising Event

Malcolm Edmonstone and Andrew Bain directors

The Toy Hearts support

This refreshingly unclassifiable summer folk day (Old English for “dragon”) spills into the beautiful gardens of St George’s, with big personalities aplenty tracing the old folk traditions and embracing the sharp, modern outlook: the pastoral modern ‘space-folkists’ Rivers of England; celebrated Cotswold’s singer/ songwriter Johnny Coppin; the eccentrically eclectic Pepino Band; cultured acoustic fingerstyle folk/blues guitarist Jim Tigwell; gently seductive folk-pop melodramatist Suzy Condrad; the absolutely mighty, darkly edgy Alan Doyle and David Garner (the latter All-Britain Fiddle Champion); and more.

Scotland’s foremost youth jazz ensemble, the 19-piece NYJOS keeps the Saltire flying with a superlative performance of wellknown jazz standards, exciting and original Scottish big band works and free spirited improvisations. Showcasing their disciplined ensemble playing, unbelievably acute talent and precocious maturity, the well-drilled and dynamic repertoire keeps the hands clapping and the toes tapping. The future of Scottish jazz is safe in their hands. ‘The band played with a maturity well beyond their years and experience. Kudos all round.’ the herald

A veritable feast for the folky heart. For full line-up and running times please visit:

Traditional old school American country from a legendary balladeer. It is difficult to imagine the world of country music without the vast contribution that lone star hero Gene Watson has made to it. Long one of the standard bearers for honest, soulful ballads in the classic country tradition, his mid-Seventies chart debut Love in the Hot Afternoon ignited a firestorm of national hits including Any Which Way from the soundtrack of the Clint Eastwood movie of the same title. With his heartfelt, pure tone singing and personal, expressive versions of toe-tapping honky-tonk, yearning hard-country and poignantly reflective ‘love gone wrong’ ballads, this is real country music rooted in the timeless values of Nashville’s grand tradition. ‘Gene Watson is one of my all-time favourite ballad singers; it doesn’t get any better than that.’ george jones
