Now the first claws of autumn have us in their clammy grasp, Limelight is wasting no time in luring you back to the warm, inviting depths of its Soho basement.
So please join us on Weds 25 Sept to celebrate the return of one of our favourite artists: sensational saxophonist Amy Dickson, who first performed at Limelight in Oct 2009, supported by new all-girl vocal group Celeste.
Born in Sydney, Amywas the first saxophonist to win the Symphony Australia Young Performer of the Year award. She once performed for former Australian PM John Howard, and her most recent album, 'Dusk & Dawn’, attained the coveted number one position in the UK classical charts. In October, she will be playing at the Classic BRITs alongside pianists Lang Lang and Ludovico Einaudi.
Already creating a stir worldwide, Celeste is a new all-girl vocal group formed only last autumn. The five girls are all ex-cathedral choristers and thus steeped in the soundscape of delicious harmonies and beautiful melodies. They are equally at home singing classical, popular and jazz, and their programme for Limelight will showcase their versatility.
