The Al Ain Music Festival 2016 kicks off this Thursday evening with “A Classical Serenade” in the Auditorium of Brighton College, Al Ain.
The Al Ain Chamber Orchestra and Al Ain Choral Society will be joined by a number of special guest performers.
Two more of those highly talented musicians are Rebecca Haworth and Gudmunder Jonsson.
Rebecca Haworth is currently the Deputy Head and Teacher of Music at Brighton College Al Ain. She has been living in the Oasis City since the College opened in 2013. She has greatly enjoyed seeing the Performing Arts department grow and flourish over this time. Rebecca started learning the flute at the age of 10 after hearing a performance of Poulenc’s Flute Sonata, a piece that still holds a great level of mystique and intrigue for her. She went on to read music at degree level at the University of Nottingham and continued her studies to Masters level at the University of Cambridge.
Rebecca has performed at a variety of different venues across the UK, including The Royal Albert Hall, Kings College Cambridge, York Minster and as part of the choir that performed Mahler’s 8th Symphony at Ely Cathedral. She is also a keen composer and has had compositions performed by the Allegri String Quartet and members of the London Symphony Orchestra and London Sinfonietta.
Gudmundur Jonsson first studied music at the Reykjavik College of Music under the guidance of Gardar Cortes. He then went on to study vocal performance at the Royal Academy of Music, London from 2002-2004 under Mark Wildman and Mary Hill. He has performed as a soloist in the UK, Iceland, Serbia, Italy and China. Recent performances include the role of Cuno in Der Freischutz by Carl Maria Von Weber, various lieder by Brahms and Schubert, for example, and oratorio recitals by Bach, Purcell and Handel. Gudmundur currently works at Brighton College Al Ain where he is the Head of Senior School.
“A Classical Serenade” starts at 7 pm. on Thursday, 3rd November.
Admission is free. Don’t miss it!
