Following the highly successful pilot performances of Concerteenies’ brand-new Musical Stories, which took place at ten different SSELP nurseries and schools across Sheffield, the videos are now available online. These include ‘Mixed’, featuring harpist Louise Thomson, a well-loved regular at Concerteenies.
Louise Thomson (harp) and Polly Ives, Director of Concerteenies, have teamed up many times in the past to present engaging, interactive activities and music for very young children. Indeed, they are looking forward to presenting Tiddler the Story-Telling Fish (by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler) together at St. David’s Hall, Cardiff, as part of the World Harp Congress which is now taking place in 2021.
The Concerteenies team is now releasing a series of 24 short, inspirational, and engaging films represent the ‘typical’ life of a family with young children.
The New Oxford Consort’s next concerts, on 28th November and 1st December, provide a great chance to hear the group who recently launched a collaboration with Tashmina Artist Louise Thomson (harp).
Louise and the New Oxford Consort are offering an enticing programme of music for upper voices and harp, entitled “Eastern Pictures”, featuring in particular the music of Gustav and Imogen Holst. Their programme showcases the broad range of excellent music that is available to the combination of upper-voice choir and harp, with works including Gustav Holst’s ‘Choral Hymns from the Rig Veda’.
