With ROSL's Fringe series of recitals complete for another year, all eyes to turn back to the clubhouse, where an exciting season of events starts in September and will see the return of the Rush Hour concerts. First up, BBC Radio's Clare Teal will give us a jazz-infused set on Tuesday 10 September.
As much as she loves fronting her Trio or Big Mini Band or singing with orchestras around the world, award winning singer and BBC Radio 2 presenter Clare Teal still revels in performing in more intimate venues accompanied by just piano.
From swing to sublime ballads, Clare’s Duo Concerts are renowned for their fabulous musicality coupled with Clare’s warm and witty storytelling guaranteeing the audience something uniquely personal and always very special.
The rich, jazz infused repertoire explores timeless classics penned by the legendary musical storytellers of the last 100 years, and celebrates giants of the Great American and British Songbooks through to the work of more contemporary writers crafting the standards of today plus Clare’s own original compositions.
The joyous ever-evolving set list, draws from a rich catalogue including selections from Cole Porter, Duke Ellington, Rodgers and Hart, Sting, Van Morrison and Ed Cobb and honouring the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Anita O’Day, Nancy Wilson, Frances Faye and Peggy Lee.
As one of the UK’s greatest interpreters of song and much loved performers, with 15 acclaimed albums to her name Clare and her pianist promise a sparkling hour of inspired music and unbridled entertainment, performed by the very best.
£22 for members and Friends of ROSL ARTS. £28 General Admission. Book here.
