Today's matinee is a Birmingham debut for Anaïs Gaudemard, the outstanding Paris-based harpist, already with a string of major international awards to her name, who continues to establish herself among the best performers of her generation.
With an appetite for innovative repertoire, Gaudemard's programme includes a new commission by French composer Camille Pépin, inspired by Nighthawks, one of the best-known works by the prominent American realist painter Edward Hopper.
Anaïs Gaudemard is nominated by Cité de la musique - Philharmonie de Paris and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation Lisbon as an ECHO Rising Star.
Town Hall & Symphony Hall believe that music has the power to transform and change lives, to entertain and uplift, to create shared experiences and to educate. We connect people to music through a dynamic and varied concert and education programme at our two world-renowned concert halls - managed jointly by the registered charity Performances Birmingham Limited - and in the wider community.www.thsh.co.uk/
Town Hall has been a hub of civic and cultural life for 180 years. From classical to comedy, rock to pop, it's now one of the city's most versatile venues. Acclaimed at its opening in 1834 as the finest music hall in the country, this Grade 1 listed landmark has been renovated by a dedicated team of conservation and construction professionals. Its imposing neo-classical design dominates Victoria and Chamberlain Squares.www.thsh.co.uk/
