Since 2004, Nonclassical has been redefining classical music in places you wouldn’t expect; pubs, clubs, galleries and other surprise locations have been transformed by brave new musical thinking and genre-defying collaborations. On Wednesday 9 March, Nonclassical brings their pioneering club night to the Old Church for a celebration of wind, air and breath.
About the artists
Pianist, composer and improvisor John Kameel Farah is based between Toronto and Berlin. Over the last ten years, he has focused on his own unique hybrid of Baroque, Electronic, Arabic and experimental music, using a set up of piano, computer, synthesizers and electronics – and will be performing this work on organ for this special event.
Sarah Dacey studied at the University of York and the Royal Academy of Music, and performs with the BBC Singers, Philharmonia Voices, The Octandre Ensemble, Okeanos Ensemble and the Oriel Quartett. An advocate of new music, Sarah has worked with many of today’s finest composers including Anna Meredith, Paul Mealor, Gavin Bryars, Errollyn Wallen, Duncan MacLeod, Mica Levi and Dai Fujikura.
