Phil Powell, CAN Trustee has organised two concerts in support of CAN with a wonderful quartet of musicians coming together to play contemporary choral works. With the organisation of these Concerts for CAN Phil has added 'impresario' to his many talents as he particularly wanted to showcase the stupendous talent of these musicians as well as bring the haunting music they play to a wider audience. Please come along and support this venture. 

The quartet of musicians include Swiss violinist and contemporary composer Paul Giger, counter-tenor David James, harpsichord artist Marie Louise Dahler and percussionist Pudi Lehmann. 

Paul Giger has worked as a soloist since 1983 playing Baroque, contemporary composition, improvisaton, jazz and music of diverse folk traditions. Paul is an internationally acclaimed virtuoso who has worked with Jan Garbarek, Pierre Favre and the Hilliard Ensemble. Six of his albums have been released on ECM who consider him to be "easily one of the greatest violinists of our time" and a composer who has "created some of the most haunting music to ever grace your ears."

David James, counter-tenor has enjoyed an international career as a soloist and ensemble singer. He was a founder-member of the Hilliard Ensemble performing medieval, renaissance and contemporary works by Arvo Part, James MacMillan and Jan Garbarek.
