Described as 'a triumphant assertion' by Classical Music Magazine, Corinne Morris's relaunch album Macedonian Sessions recorded with the Macedonian Radio Symphony Orchestra, marks the British/French cellist's return to the platform after a debilitating shoulder injury brought her career to a halt for over 5 years.

Corinne has performed throughout Europe and beyond. She was chosen by Rostropovich to perform at his festival in Evian, and subsequently invited to the Verbier Academy in Switzerland. She has made several recordings for the BBC, France Musique, Bayerischer Rundfunk and ORF. Corinne, a student of Raphael Sommer, obtained an ARCM with honours (Royal College of Music, London) before continuing at the prestigious Conservatoire in Paris where she graduated in both cello and chamber-music.
Corinne’s story has inspired many in the music industry and beyond. She has given several interviews for publications including International Arts Manager, Classical Music Magazine, Gramophone and Australia’s Limelight Magazine. Most recently Corinne has been featured on BBC Radio 3's In Tune programme and she gave a highly successful recital at St Martin-in-the-Fields.

Kathron Sturrock was twice the winner for the best pianist at the Sofia International Opera Competition. She then worked for several years in Elisabeth Schwarzkopf's master classes. She is a founder member and Artistic Director of the chamber ensemble The Fibonacci Sequence, and records frequently for BBC Radio 3. As a soloist she has appeared with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and the BBC Concert Orchestra, making her Proms debut in 1994, and has recorded for various labels including Hyperion and Chandos. In September 2003 she joined the Keyboard Faculty at the Royal College of Music, London.

Ticketholders are invited to enjoy the Club's exclusive bar and lounge before and after the performance.
