This special evening performance at Schott Music London marks the debut performance of The Oizys Ensemble in a concert to raise awareness of mental health.
The Oiyzs Ensemble is a new chamber ensemble made up of nine London-based classical musicians, co-founded by Marcus R Feld (composer), Alicia Chaffey (piano) and Katie Gilbert (voice). The ensemble’s aim is to help raise awareness of mental health issues, open up conversations and break the stigma through our performances and The Arts. The programme will combine music, the arts and mental health awareness, and will feature a new piece titled Vincent; which draws its inspiration from the paintings of Vincent van Gogh and the struggles that he had with his own mental health, written by American composer Marcus R Feld. The programme will also include other music featuring composers who lived with mental health issues, such as Chopin and Schumann, as well as pieces that feature different dimensions of emotional experience.
The concert is free to attend with no tickets required but there will be a donation box. Any money collected will be used towards the costs of the concert. Seating is limited so please arrive early; standing spaces are available in the balcony.
