Ad-Lib Ensemble host an interactive live-streamed performance on the theme of ‘Socially Distant Summer’.
Audience members are invited to submit pictures and poetry about their own summers in advance, and the ensemble will create micro-improvisations in response. There will also be an opportunity for live submissions and questions.
Ad-Lib is a collective of classical musicians passionate about improvisation, storytelling and creative performance. Chloé Lam (soprano, pictured), Lindsey Fillingham (flute), Heather Ryall (clarinet) and Jonathan Jarvis (piano) met at Guildhall School and made their debut at the Barbican’s OpenFest in 2018. Between them they have performed at venues including the Royal Albert Hall, Barbican, The Sage Gateshead, Bridgewater Hall, Milton Court and have been broadcast on BBC radio and TV.
This online event is part of Make + Create Breaks: a summer season of Instagram Live sessions featuring creative work from Guildhall School staff, students and alumni.
