Fangbin     Zoe

We are delighted to welcome back pianist Fangbin Xia, a student at the Royal Northern College of Music, who performed here at Forsyth last year. For her final-year creative project, she has curated a programme exploring a wide variety of musical styles: a baroque trumpet sonata by Torelli; songs by Austin Miller, whose music combines classical and popular genres; and a multimedia work by Indonesia-born Dutch composer Roderik de Man. The musical performances will be accompanied by live painting by Caroline Bordignon.
