Jazz at Gloucester Cathedral - The Derek Paravicini Quartet


Jazz at Gloucester Cathedral - The Derek Paravicini Quartet

On Friday 10 March at 7.30pm Gloucester Cathedral will be transformed into an intimate candlelit jazz club, in order to welcome this up-and-coming, vibrant jazz ensemble.
 
The Derek Paravicini Quartet is currently wowing audiences all over the UK, following their successful debut on the BBC’s In Tune programme. Four stunningly talented young musicians combine to create a unique sound, portraying a kaleidoscope of emotions through jazz standards, classical hits and songs from the shows.
 
Derek Paravicini (piano) is one of the most extraordinary pianists and musical entertainers of his generation. Yet he is blind, autistic and has severe learning difficulties. Derek started to teach himself the piano when he was two years old, and has performed in venues ranging from Ronnie Scott’s renowned jazz club in London, to the Mandalay Bay Arena in Las Vegas. The subject of a 2009 TV documentary by neurologist Oliver Sachs, and dubbed ‘The Human iPod’ in the States, Derek has a repertoire of tens of thousands of pieces. His astonishing improvisations and dazzling technique have gained him over a million hits on YouTube and another million on TED.
 
Derek is joined by local girl Hannah Davey (vocals), Ben Holder (violin) and Ollie Howell (drums).
 
Tickets are priced at £15 and are available from Tel: 0845 652 1823 (Mon-Fri 10.00am – 4.00pm), in person from the Cathedral Gift Shop (Mon-Fri 10.00am – 4.00pm) or on-line at www.gloucestercathedral.org.uk . Drinks and bar snacks will be served throughout the evening.
