Miranda Evans graduated last year from Aberdeen University, and has been offered a conditional place at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland to continue her studies. She is currently taught by Jane Irwin. Miranda’s previous recitals have been well received, prompting comments such as ‘wonderful control’ and ‘polished an understatement’ (Garry Fraser, Dundee Courier). She will be treating us to a selection of English and German song focussing particularly on Britten and Brahms, a slightly mischievous combination given Britten’s famous dislike of Brahms. Both composers set a wide range of poets with Britten having a particular facility for imaginative and sensitive folk song settings.
Helen Standen began piano lessons aged 7 and taught beginners at 15, after passing her grade 8. She went on to study with Elsa Cross - a former pupil of Weburn - and Swiss pianist Albert Ferber, finishing her studies with Gordon Fergus Thompson. She has been teaching, accompanying and playing chamber music for over 40 years. She left London for inverness 20 years ago.
Simon Evans has played the violin since the age of 10. At 14 he was leader of the North Wales Youth Orchestra and a member of National Youth Orchestra of Wales. He was taught by Fred Brough as a teenager, and has participated in the Violin Masterclass at Dartington in 2016 with Chloe Hanslip and has been coached by the Skampa and Heath Quartets. He led the Dartington Summer School Orchestra for two years and is co-leader of ‘The Mahler Players’. He has been invited to be a soloist with the Dundee Chamber Orchestra and the Highland Chamber Orchestra.
