Stephanie Oatridge & Adam Brown

Wednesday 7th June 2017, 7:30pm

This concert will now take place at Clitheroe Royal Grammar School Sixth Form Centre,
York St., Clitheroe, BB7 2DJ (the venue where we hold our winter series concerts).

This replaces our use of the previously publicised  Ribble Valley Borough Council Civic Suite,
which is no longer available to us because of the General Election the following day.

This is our Summer Concert. There are NO tickets; admission is by donation on the night

7cii Oatridge Brown Duo square

Stephanie Oatridge (oboe) received a distinction for her Postgraduate Diploma from the Royal Academy of Music, where she was awarded the RAM Friends’ Development Award. She enjoys a varied freelance career, in both modern and period instrument performance, working with distinguished conductors, including Sir Colin Davis and Sir John Eliot Gardiner. She is equally in demand as a soloist and chamber musician, and has performed at celebrated concert venues throughout Europe.

Guitarist Adam Brown has performed throughout Europe, the United States and South America.  Training at the Royal College of Music in London was followed by post-graduate studies at the Juilliard School in New York City at the invitation of celebrated guitarist Sharon Isbin. His three solo albums, The Rebels Within, Gladios and Without Limits – An American Century of Music for Guitar, have received critical acclaim and international broadcast.

This unique instrumental duo presents profound Iberian songs alongside works that evoke 1930s café culture, describe exotic Brazilian street foods and capture the workings of a lively brothel! Spoken narrative interludes provide the audience with an interesting cultural context, helping to bring the works alive.
