Join young mezzo soprano Jadwiga Slomka and pianist Antonia Lax for a charming concert in the 19th Century Picture Gallery, featuring Czech, Russian and Polish music. Jadwiga trained with Jane Ford Farrand at Durham University. Antonia teaches piano at Durham University and the Sage and is a sought after solo performer and accompanist.
In this final session we’ll focus on contemporary art and the dynamic combination of materials, methods, subjects and theories artists use today to push boundaries in media and meaning.
