The Music Club has also formed close ties with the KANNEH-MASON family which culminated with Sheku performing with his sister ISATA so successfully in the final concert of the 2017-18 season. ISATA, who has just signed a record deal with Decca, now returns to perform with another member of this hugely talented family, her brother BRAIMAH. He studies at the Royal Academy and has already given critically acclaimed performances.

Sat 25th April at 7:30pm
The 'Parnell Phil' with Ghiulnara Raileanu, soprano

90th Annivesary Bonus Concert
Ghiulnara Raileanu (Soprano)
Alistair Parnell (Saxophone)
Philip Robinson (Piano)

Venue: ChristChurch Finkin Street


The group will perform a wide range of inspiring music including dramatic Operatic arias, jazz tunes and classic melodies, as you've never heard them before.

Ghiulnara Raileanu was born in Chisinau, Republic of Moldova, in 1984. She attended the College of Music “St. Neaga" (2004), and subsequently graduate and alumnus of the Academy of Music, Theatre and Fine Arts, Chisinau (2008), studying with the professor Tatiana Busuioc, Master of Arts.

Her notable roles includes title roles such as: Floria Tosca in “Tosca” by G. Puccini, Countess Rosina Almaviva in “The marriage of Figaro”, Desdemona in “Otello” by G. Verdi, Mimi in “La Boheme” and Liu in “Turandot”, etc.

Alistair Parnell and Phillip Robinson formed ‘The Parnell Phil’ in 2010 after collaborating on various projects together in the East Midlands. Both graduates of the Royal College of Music, they each bring a wealth of musical experience to draw on in styles from Baroque. 

Their aim is to rediscover music that is often well known but present it in either a new arrangement, or with a new combination of instruments. Organ, Harpsichord, synthesiser, alto and soprano saxophone, and the fascinating Electronic Wind Instrument as well as voice combine to create a refreshing but accessible programme of music, suitable for all ages and tastes all presented in their own lively and informative style.
