The talented recorder quartet, Palisander, will be performing at St. Mary’s Church in April.  Their programme is called ‘Journey to the New World’ and contains music from Tallis to Vivaldi to Vaughan Williams, performed on a variety of Renaissance and Baroque recorders. The concert is funded by the Brighton Early Music Festival promoter fund.  Venue: St Mary’s Church, Slindon

Palisander is delighted to have been selected for the prestigious St John’s Smith Square Young Artists’ scheme 2016-2017. Last year, the group was selected for Brighton Early Music Festival’s ‘Early Music Live!’ scheme; ‘the leading training and apprenticeship scheme for young early music ensembles’. Winners of the June Emerson Launchpad Prize for chamber groups, the group has performed at the Royal Greenwich International Early Music Festival, Newbury Spring Festival and Handel and Hendrix in London. Palisander’s international performances include the Open Recorder Days festival, Amsterdam and the Tel Aviv International Early Music Seminar. The quartet has performed at contemporary music venues, on occasions with dancers and actors and at the Wallace Collection, for London Fashion Week. Palisander’s new children’s show, Dr Dee’s Daughter and the Philosopher’s Stone, is a collaboration with theatre and puppetry company Rust and Stardust. The project will tour in 2017, with support from the Arts Council England.
