We are privileged to welcome the Derek Paravicini Trio (with Ben Holder) in a scintillating programme of ‘Jazz on a summer's day’.
Derek (b. 1979) is an extraordinarily talented pianist, despite being blind and having severe learning difficulties. He plays entirely by ear, and has a repertoire of many thousands of pieces that he has memorised - jazz, pop and light classical - and he is a great improviser. Derek featured recently in a special BBC Radio Three programme.
Derek is accompanied by the equally astonishing virtuoso jazz violinist Ben Holder, so well known & loved by St. Giles audiences.
Derek performs on behalf of autistic children and has his own autistic charity the AMBER TRUST. Proceeds from this concert will be shared with that charity and Project 900. Wines and nibbles as usual.
