Miriam Nerval is one of the UK's brightest classical stars and an inaugural artist of the City Music Foundation will make her City of London Festival debut in a spectacular concert at St Sepulchre-without Newgate on 10th July.
The programme of this unique concert experience narrates the historical story of The Old Bailey and it's position in British Justice. This very special event, which will take place in two of the City's most iconic landmarks, will be narrated by The Recorder of London Brain Barker QC and presented by The Late Lord Mayor of London Sir Roger Gifford.
Unique with its twin venue setting, Miriam Nerval will take us on a musical journey from early Baroque to 20th Century repertoire, intertwined with tales of fascinating insight about the home of British justice.
Miriam Nerval is one of the most exciting recorder players of her generation. A graduate of Guildhall School of Music and Drama and has given recitals at many of the most vibrant music festivals including Tel 'Aviv, The London Handel Festival, The Dolmetsch Centenary Celebrations, The Brandenburg Festival, Britten100 and Greenwich Early Music Festival. Miriam was privileged to be the first recorder player to play at the new Milton Court Concert Hall and has performed alongside the Britten Pears Baroque Orchestra and Eboracum Baroque.
This fascinating cultural event will be presented at both St Sepulchre-without Newgate and The Old Bailey with continuo accompaniment from James Bramley (Lute) and Nathaniel Mander (Harpischord) and will finish with an exclusive drinks reception under the dome at The Old Bailey celebrating this unique festival concert and showcase event.
