Lunchtime Recital with Claire Garabedian, cello. Dr Claire Garabedian, is a professional cellist specialising in historical performance, a Certified Music Practitioner (USA), and an experienced researcher focusing on the effects of the arts on people with dementia/people. She has presented her work throughout the UK, Europe and the USA; including at the Hay Literature Festival and on BBC Radio 4. Claire will play an engaging combination of familiar and perhaps unfamiliar classical and Scottish music.
Last Monday, the Wighton Centre was turned into a recording studio by recording enginner Bob Turner, to record some tracks for the forthcoming limited edition CD produced by the Friends of WIghton as part of the fundraising for the Sir Jimmy Shand Collection.
Tracks were recorded from Mark Spalding playing a Ronald Stevenson composition on the harpsichord, the Wighton Singers, Ellie McDonald reading poetry, Simon Chadwick playing the replica Queen Mary harp, and Morag Anne Elder on the fiddle with Katie playing cello.
At least two of the tracks are the first ever recordings (the harpsichord and harp track). Other tracks are being recorded at Gardyne Studios, and also some tracks will be donated by other artists from their published CDs.
If you missed claiming the CD as a perk on our Indiegogo crowdfunding last month, you will still be able to buy your copy when the strictly limited edition is released.
The Lunchtime Recital at Wighton Heritage Centre, Central Library, Wellgate Centre, Dundee, on Wednesday 4th February, will feature well-known local fiddle teacher Morag Anne Elder & 17 year old Joanna Stark.
The Tayport duo will brighten a winter day with Music for the Season played on fiddle, cello and guitar.
