Over the past decade Rakhi Singh has cemented herself as one of the leading lights in the UK’s contemporary instrumental scene. She is music director for Manchester Collective with whom she plays over 70 concerts a year across Europe and beyond, described in The Guardian’s Classical picks as having a ‘golden tone’ in a recent four star review.

Singh is known for taking audiences on a journey through the incredible breadth and range of emotions summoned by a single, solo violin. Expect to hear the likes of Bach, Matteis, Sciarrino, Oliver Coates, Michael Gordon and Ruta Vitkauskaite.

Having performed with, for and alongside instrumental pioneers Philip Glass and Steve Reich and artists at the vanguard of contemporary instrumental music today such as Mica Levi, Clark and Oliver Coates her performances meld the past and present seamlessly. 

Expected programme:

  • Fantasia – Matteis
  • O Mirium – Ruta Vitkauskaite
  • Tinge – Michael Gordon
  • Fugue in G Minor – J.S. Bach
  • Caprice no 2 – Sciarrino
  • Dark Sky Community – Oliver Coates
  • In Beautiful May – Andrew Hamilton
