SongEasel was established in 2018 to fill South East London with song. With threefold-aims to provide a platform for outstanding singers in the area; to bring new repertoire to established audiences; and to introduce standard repertoire to new audiences. Each series holds diversity and inclusivity at the heart of its mission, in harmony with showcasing exceptional musical quality at an international standard.
Our 2022 series Icons & Legends celebrates a notorious dinner meeting in Paris in May 1922 that included Marcel Proust, James Joyce, Pablo Picasso, Igor Stravinsky and Sergei Diaghilev. Six song recitals in St Laurence Church Catford and Blackheath Halls pay homage to the meeting of minds of these creative luminaries.
SongEasel would like to extend its deepest gratitude to the Arts Council England, Blackheath Halls, the Nicholas Boas Charitable Trust, the Friends of SongEasel, the Church of St Laurence Catfor, The Leche Trust and the Oleg Prokofiev Trust.
