Nepal tour 2016

nepal poster28th March - 6th April 2016

Nepal: Patan, Bhaktapur, Kathmandu, Pokhara 

Ishirini is performing in various locations in Nepal in March/April 2016, collaborating with university music students and schoolchildren and raising money for the Kathmandu University Music Department. 

Our music is based on the theme of prayer, as Nepal has been in our thoughts and prayers since the devastating earthquake of April 2015. Our repertoire is mostly sacred music from the 16th to the 21st centuries. We are pleased to be repeating a piece commissioned for our 2011 tour to India: based around the Tagore song Anandaloke, we will sing out of the mouths of children by Peter Allwood with school children from Hindu Vidyapeeth, Patan. 

Schedule of performances:

21st February: Pre-tour concert in St Mary with St Alban, Teddington, UK

30th March: Bhaktapur

31st March 4pm: Hindu Vidyapeeth, Patan

1st April 5pm: Joint concert with students from Kathmandu University Music Department in the German Embassy, Kathmandu
