London Dance Orchestra Swing Quartet Nov 18

The London Dance Orchestra has offered to send a Live Swing Quartet to the Hill Station, with a view to starting another night for dancers down this way!!

You’ve heard them at Wilton’s, at Swan Wharf, and currently on Tuesday nights at the Scolt Head in Dalston; if not, here’s a clip from their latest album (not yet released!  You heard it here first!). With over 15 years of playing for dancers, they know what we want, and they get a buzz from playing for us, so it’s an ideal situation!!

We’re going to run our first dance together, Wednesday 18 November, from 8:30 – 10:30 pm.  0ad45153-c34d-48e1-91c9-2bc7c6bc194e

And here’s the deal.  We are limiting this one to 40 max, so we’re asking people to let us know ahead of time that they want to join us, to be sure they get in.  And because you have helped me before, if you want to get in at the beginning, here’s your opportunity!

There will be a cash bar.

Tickets: £7; £5 concession if you book with me (Deborah, endwellroad@virginmedia.com) in advance; £10/£7 on the door.  If you want to volunteer (set up, clean up, bar, DJ, door), well, you get in free, of course!

Ps. If we decide to continue, we will need help to do this on a regular basis — people who can get the word out, maybe teach a lesson, prepare fliers, set up FB events and pages, help set up and clean up and for the bar.  If you want to help make this an on-going event, let me know when you book.

Can’t wait — Robin is really committed to his music and making it the best possible with the best musicians he/we can afford.  Hope to see you there.

Tango Night

** Correction to event time which will now run from 7-11pm**

Bold vision will be running an Argentinian themed fundraiser on the 16th of February. The fundraiser is to cover repair costs to the community space and the installation of disabled access, enable us to keep the Hill Station maintained and support our other activities.

Live performance from highly acclaimed Uruguayan Ana Karina Rossi (see http://www.anakarinarossi.com.uy/) just finished a series of performances in the Uruguayan National Theatre, the wonderful Ricardo Cinalli’s, more known for his paintings than his incredibly intuitive approach to playing tangos on piano. And to complete the trio, newly arrived from Sardinia, maestro Mauro Uselli, on flute, who has found in The Hill Station, a place to begin his way into the musical scene in London.

Anna: “I was born in Montevideo. Since very young I breathed tango in the streets of my city, during family gatherings, on the radio, and when listening to my father hum Discepolo and Gardel. Thanks to my father, I studied piano and received my first Steinway. My mother went along with me to take the admission exam at the Conservatory of Music. Mother waited even more impatiently than I for the jury’s decision. And it was then, at 14 years of age, that passing the exam allowed me to study music on an academic level. Singing has always been present in my life, but by the end of my teenage years, singing particularly meant tango; it soon grew wings and took me to discover the world. I realized then that tango had no frontiers, and through it, I can sing from the vast textures of life, with humour, with nostalgia, allowing dreams to walk their own paths, singing a tango to love, to pain, to hope, to friendship or solitude, to make memories live, and to inspire a longing for the future. Feeling tango in my soul and expressing it with my voice is today the best passport with which I travel, and like a bird, I take music here and there- the music of my motherland.
