TYPE OF EVENT : Guildhall School of Music, Jazz, Dinner Jazz

The UK is home to some of the world's finest music academies, several of them are in London and one in particular, Guildhall School of Music & Drama, is virtually on Toulouse Lautrec's doorstep. We've decided to offer GSMD postgraduates a residency they can call their own, to give our audience and us an opportunity to get to know these exceptional up and coming young players. We'll be seeing a lot of them in the future, but why wait?
Come down any Monday night and enjoy a lot of them right now.

This week Guildhall in Focus presents

Irini Arabatzi (Vocals) & David Swan (Piano)

Irini Arabatzi is a jazz singer from Greece. After playing the classical piano from the age of 6 till 18, she discovered jazz and improvisation that along with world and traditional music became her biggest inspirations. She grew up in Brussels but moved to Greece to study at the Law School of Athens, but at the same time attended the Athenaeum Conservatory and performed in most major venues and festivals all over Greece with some of the most renowned jazz musicians. She has been member of the jazz vocal group “Les Trois Femmes” and the world vocal group “Fonés” and was also member of the cast of two musical theatre productions, “West Side Story” at the Athens Concert Hall and “Shrek” at the National Theatre of Greece.

While spending a year in the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland she had the chance to be a member of the Euroradio Orchestra hosted by the BBC Radio and collaborated with the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra recording Kenny Wheeler's ''Sweet Sister Suite'' and Tommy Smith’s Youth Jazz Orchestra. This year she moved to London to complete her Master’s Degree in Guildhall School of Music and Drama, been a member of the samba group Rhythms of the City, while working on various projects and discovering London’s music scene.
