FuMarprovisation Jazz & Art Workshop, 12noon to 3pm
Musicians Phil Furneaux and Krys Markowski will join artist Stephen Warner in this unique collaborative improvised art and music session. Starting with a blank canvas and no sheet music, FuMar and Stephen will respond to each other's creative energy, with Stephen painting the music and FuMar 'playing' the painting. This should be a fascinating and unique experience!
Come along anytime between 12noon and 3pm to watch this creative process take shape - if you're an artist and would like to take part by drawing or painting along please email Phil to find out how you can get involved.
FuMar Jazz Concert, 7.30pm
Phil Furneaux (saxophone) and Krys Markowski (Piano) met on their first day at University in Manchester and have be good friends since. They spent that first year going to classical concerts in the Free Trade Hall and attending the big rock concerts in the students union and other big Manchester venues. Little did they know that this was the back drop for their coming together in 2010 to play as a duo in the cafes in Paris.
Their friendship is deeply embedded in the music. The trust and security they have allows them to experiment and be innovative. Their past experience of their careers bring a vast range of skills and experience which they put into planning and organising their work. They feel they have a lot to offer the musical community and are working hard to accomplish their ideas before the “time runs out”!
FuMar’s music has been described by many to be deeply moving and full of emotion. This comes from their full range of life experience and the thought and intensity they put into their play.
You don't need to attend the afternoon workshop to come along and enjoy this concert of jazz standards and contemporary tunes.
