Newcastle: Sounds of the Underground- Beatrix Ward-Fernandez + John Pope 13.07.2019

Beatrix Ward Fernandez Beatrix Ward Fernandez

This July, as part of our stellar line up of music in the historic Victoria Tunnel we are proud to present Beatrix Ward-Fernandez plus special guest John Pope.

Beatrix was born in London, raised in Cadiz, and began classical violin training upon her relocation to Sheffield, UK.
A lasting interest in experimental and improvised music led to her adoption of the theremin, while the development of new techniques to meet with the demands of these musics remains her abiding interest. Her trio has performed at the international theremin symposium "Hands Off", while her 2009 audio installation, “Castillo de Luna “ (for theremin & waterphone) was exhibited at the AC Institute in New York.

She has performed with a number of internationally recognised artists, including Gino Robair, Okkyung Lee, Simon H. Fell, Jez riley French, Ryoko Akama, Mick Beck, Jim Denley, Pat Thomas, and Chris Corsano. Her acclaimed album “Trio” was released in 2008, and “View From The East”, a duet composition performed alongside percussionist Charlie Collins, in 2010.
Her music has been released on Discus, Found Property, Singing Knives, and Classwar Karaoke.

*Performances start promptly at 7.30pm and 9.15pm- please note that due to limited space in the tunnel the capacity is set strictly to only 50 guests.
We operate a strict no alcohol policy in the Victoria Tunnel and will also be carrying out bag searches on request.
