Yes, it is that time of year again - the Ad Hoc team have programmed a concert of fabulous new music, with theatrical and electronic twists!

This year we will be presenting the evening on Saturday 17th May, 8pm, at the Synergy Centre, Camberwell.

(nearest tube, Oval - Northern Line - travel details on the 'contact us' section of the venue's website)
There is a suggested donation on the door of £8 (£6 concessions) and you are welcome to bring your own drinks, alcoholic or otherwise, to refresh yourself throughout the evening, as there is no bar.
What the evening will throw at you:
*Laura Moody will be entertaining us with a set of her own songs for voice and cello - she will also be playing
*Judith Ring's piece for cello and electronics 'Up To My F Holes'
* Henri Vaxby will be playing 'Cahiers Trouvés', a piece for electric guitar and effects, by Catherine Kontz, and he has also written a piece called 'Violin + Voice' for Angharad Davies

As well as strings+voice+electronics we are also presenting two brand new vocal works, 'as if towards a sweet and gentle sun' and 'the wind's hand creases...' , by
* Raymond Hardy, to be performed by a fractured version of the soprano quartet,
* Tongue Stuff, and
* Morag Galloway and Ian MacDonald will be presenting a new piece of musical theatre 'Exercise in Futility'
* Betsy and Her Voices have devised a piece which, in her words, ' about my devoted relationship to my 'self' and others in the face of the unravelling of linear thoughts into dream sequences and the whole wild and wooly world of rapid eye movement sleep.'
