UNION CHAPEL PRESENTS MARGINALISED
Four very special performances take place in the Union Chapel in support of the Margins Project, an in-house charity for people who are homeless or in crisis in London.
The Michael Nyman Band feat. David McAlmont
Following their first live outing as a duo in January, the remarkable collaboration between singer David McAlmont and composer/pianist Michael Nyman has developed into a new recording project featuring McAlmont with the Michael Nyman Band.
McAlmont has selected various Nyman compositions and turned to world news for inspiration. Written in the first person these new songs draw on a variety of subjects from 21st century piracy (Going to America), lothario world leaders (In Re Don Giovanni) drug mules (In Laos) and banking errors (Take The Money And Run). Nyman is delighted with the results and Marginalised are thrilled to present the world premiere and CD launch of this new project.
Michael Nyman is the UK’s most prestigious and innovative composers whose work has reached its widest audience through his film scores (The Piano, The Draughtman’s Contract, Man On A Wire). David McAlmont’s exquisite voice – “One day he will open his mouth and a cathedral will fall out" Melody Maker - has enthralled soul and jazz fans both as a solo artist and as one half of the hit-making duo McAlmont and Butler.
Other concerts in this series include:
Mon 19 Oct: Gavin Bryars Ensemble
Thurs 22 Oct: The music of Vernon Elliot (a tribute to the world of Oliver Postgate)
Fri 23 Oct: Max Richter performing from From The Art of Mirrors
