Young Artists in the City
Michelle Marie Santiago, piano
In celebration of Canada Day on 1 July, 'Canadian Mosaic' explores the vast multicultural and regional aspects which make up the unique Canadian identity.
Our 'Young Artists in the City' series is devised by piano accompaniment students, and recent graduates of the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, The Royal Academy of Music, and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance. It gives an opportunity to an aspiring pianist to be the driving force behind one of our themed concerts, providing valuable professional development.
From Our Artistic Director
Song in the City takes classical music out of its comfort zone. Through the genre of song, we aim to revolutionise the relationship between classical musicians and their audiences through imaginative concerts, and social projects.
Song in the City is more than your average classical venue. We programme concerts around inventive and often challenging themes, bringing talented singers and pianists to the heart of the Square Mile, in the intimate and beautiful setting of the Hall at St Botolph without Bishopsgate. Our regular FREE concerts take place on Thursday Lunchtime at 1pm (c45 mins). We are also developing a number of social projects. Check out our latest project here. In late 2015 Song in the City released its very first CD: Voices of London: Songs of the big smoke.
