Music is a world within itself - with a language we all understand” (Stevie Wonder)

On Jeffrey Skidmore’s 70th birthday, we invite you to join us for a virtual voyage Around the World to destinations as diverse and beautiful as Rio de Janeiro, Sucre, Versailles, Milan and the Isle of Skye.

This free*, 40-minute online concert celebrates Jeffrey’s varied interests, his research trips, and the many journeys in music he has conducted with Ex Cathedra. There will be glorious music from the Latin American and French baroque, little known gems from the Italian renaissance and Jacobean era, and traditional favourites from Sweden and Scotland.

Into this melting pot we have added Liz Dilnot Johnson’s inspirational Blake Reimagined with its fusion of English, Indian classical and improvisation, and a fabulous, fun arrangement of Ben E King’s Stand by me. Wherever you go around the world, it’s the same ‘sky that we look upon’.

Don’t miss this audiovisual extravaganza, with films created by Thomas Lowen and Simon Peter King, who has toured with The Drifters.

*We'd be very grateful if you can make a donation in lieu of a ticket to help us recoup some of the costs of presenting this concert. Thank you.
