Music on the Hill - piano and vocal recital

Music on the Hill thmbFollowing the success of the Hermitage Ensemble concert this May, Kingham Hill School is delighted to launch a new series of concerts called Music on the Hill. The next concert in the series is a vocal and piano recital with talented baritone Edwin Kaye and pianist Chris Collis, which takes place on Saturday 29th June at 7:30pm in the Chapel.

Edwin and Chris will be performing an exciting and varied programme, featuring music by Robert Schumann, Gustav Mahler, Gerald Finzi and Ralph Vaughan Williams.

Tickets cost £12 (for the best seats in the house plus an interval drink) or £8 and are available in advance from Harriet Atkinson or at the door on the night. Doors are open from 7:00pm and if the weather is good, why not arrive early and bring a picnic to enjoy in the beautiful grounds of Kingham Hill?

About Edwin Kaye

Edwin was born in Oxfordshire but moved to Birmingham to attend secondary school. His parents are both enthusiastic musicians and, whilst never making it their career, encouraged him to sing and play in as many groups as was possible.

He began with the cornet at age 7 and has played a number of instruments over the years. Until he was 16, French horn was his major focus; he played in both school orchestras, the Birmingham Schools Symphony Orchestra and various wind orchestras. He still assists many amateur orchestras throughout the West Midlands wherever he can.

At 16 he started singing lessons with Sarah Wright-Owens, a soprano local to Birmingham. Then from 18 onwards he was taught by Gwion Thomas, visiting tutor at Birmingham Conservatoire. Nowadays, Edwin is working to promote himself as a soloist. His latest works have included Haydn's Seasons and Mass 'In Time of War', Stainer's Crucifixion and Faure's Requiem. Forthcoming concerts include Mozart's Requiem and Mahler's Kindertotenlieder. Meanwhile, Edwin is looking forward to starting performance studies at the Royal Northern College of Music in September 2013.
