La Vie en Rose
This is just to remind the lovers of traditional French popular music that Monique is giving her concert of Edith Piaf and Original Songs of the Sea this coming Friday July 27th at 8.00pm.
A celebration of ‘La Vie en Rose’, the evening will include some of Edith Piaf’s most beautiful songs. Monique feels a close connection to the ‘Little Sparrow’, who often comes to her in her dreams. She sings her songs with a powerful and dramatic voice and simple accompaniment on the guitar, delivering the full gamut of emotions, which is Monique’s way of paying homage to the greatest French singer of all time Edith Piaf.
In ‘Sailing is a Love Affair’ Monique shares with her audience, her adventures, singing her way across the Atlantic Ocean to Nashville, Tennessee on a boat her husband Peter built himself. Her songs are boat people and the sea, sharing their most thrilling moments at sea, captures in lyrics, music and visual images.
Sophia Lisovskaya Piano Recital
We have had to move our scheduled concert on Saturday September 22nd back to Saturday September 8th as Sophia has now been invited by Phoenix TV to take part in a spectacular show they are filming in Inner Mongolia later in September. Sophia has been increasingly sought after in China having made her widely acclaimed debut there last year.
Over the past few years St. Peter’s has become one of Sophia’s favourite venues. This will be her sixth appearance with us during our autumn programme. This is a chance to see a remarkable artist without travelling far from home and at a fraction of the price you would pay in all the other venue in which Sophia appears.
We hope to see you soon.
