Friday Night Live with Charlotte Moseley – Friday 3rd April 2020 

A Welcome Note from the Music Director at Royal Porcelain Works; Keith Slade:

A huge hello and welcome to the very first season of the Performing Arts at the Royal Porcelain Works. Music has such a wide and varied outreach and here at the Royal Porcelain Works we will seize your imagination with soloists and groups of International and local repute. Our first season promises to be an epic one!

There are concerts throughout the season that will whet the appetite no matter your musical taste, and with the kaleidoscope of different genres and artistes performing, you are certainly in for a treat.

I would like to welcome all ages to our concerts, but particularly young people and individuals who might never have dipped their toes into the Concert arena. I look forward to having the pleasure of your company throughout the series, and hope that your faith will be rewarded by a musical experience that will stay with you forever.

A bit about the artist…

Charlotte began learning the violin aged five before studying at Chethams School of Music in Manchester with Eyal Kless and Benedict Holland. She was awarded the school’s Mozart Scholarship for outstanding chamber music work as well as winning their Dewhurst and Torevell prize. She made her Wigmore Hall debut in 2010 and subsequently performed live on BBC radio 3’s In Tune programme. Charlotte held the position of leader of the CBSO Youth Orchestra for six years alongside her study at the Royal Northern College of Music with professor Alexander Sitkovetsky where she was the recipient of the Norman George Scholarship.

In high demand as a soloist, Charlotte’s most recent concerto performances have included:

  • Mendelssohn violin concerto with the Orchestra of St.John, Sale Chamber Orchestra and Coventry Youth Orchestra;
  • Elgar violin concerto with the Halesowen Orchestra, Chester Philharmonic Orchestra and Orchestra of St.John; Bruch violin concerto in G minor with the Telford Orchestra and Eroica Camerata and Midland Youth Orchestra Reunion Orchestra;
  • Tchaikovsky violin concerto with the Westmorland Symphony Orchestra, Redditch Orchestra, Inkberrow Sinfonia and Orchestra of St. John; Glazunov violin concerto with Halesowen Orchestra;
  • as well as Sibelius violin concerto with the Open University Orchestra, Milton Keynes Sinfonia and Orchestra of St. John, Mozart violin concerto in A major also with the Orchestra of St.John and Walton violin concerto with the Birmingham Charitable Orchestra.

In partnership with St. John’s Church, Bromsgrove, Charlotte played an active role in establishing the Orchestra of St. John (OSJ) in 2011. As the leader of OSJ, Charlotte and conductor Richard Jenkinson have worked with soloists such as: Mark Bebbington, Ben Frith, David Le Page, Paul Barritt and Louise Williams.

She herself has also appeared as soloist including performances of Vivaldi Four Seasons and Tchaikovsky, Mendelssohn, Elgar, Mozart A Major (No.5) and Sibelius violin concertos. The orchestra was awarded ‘Most Promising Newcomer Organisation’ in the 2014 Spirit of Bromsgrove Awards with concerts receiving 4 star reviews by the Birmingham Post.

In 2016, Charlotte was invited to lead the Sinfonia of Birmingham, with conductor Michael Seal, in their summer concert. She was subsequently invited to lead their next concert which featured Beethoven violin concerto with violinist Thomas Gould and their following concert featuring Barber violin concerto with violinist Zoë Beyers. She has since been appeared as guest leader with many Midlands-based orchestras such as the Birmingham Philharmonic, Wolverhampton Symphony and British Police Symphony Orchestras.

In 2018 Charlotte established the Orchestra of St John Sinfonietta, a condutor-less chamber orchestra based in the Midlands and directed herself from violin. In August 2018 the orchestra gave a successful tour to Malvern with a weekend of performances including Mendelssohn and Bruch violin concertos. The orchestra will perform all six of Bach’s Brandenburg concerti next season as well as Bach’s E major and A minor violin concertos and Vivaldi Four Seasons featuring Charlotte as solo violin.

In September 2015 she began her Masters degree studies at the Royal Academy of Music with professors Jack Liebeck and Mateja Marinkovic. She graduated in 2017 with Distinction and was awarded the prestigious Diploma of the Royal Academy (DipRAM) for an outstanding final recital. In 2018 she signed with Harlequin Recording to record her debut CD to be released in spring 2019.

Charlotte plays on an 1884 Joseph Hel violin and is kindly supported by the David Morgan Music Trust, the Helen Mackaness Trust, the Elmley Foundation and the Bromsgrove Institute Trust.

The Friday Night Live events are jointly organised between Royal Porcelain Works and our Artistic Director of Music; Keith Slade, who also introduces the evening and sometimes even conducts the performances!

Born in the West Midlands, Keith Slade began his musical journey learning the clarinet from the age of ten.  After reaching the final of the BBC Young Musician of the Year Woodwind Category, Keith graduated from the Royal Northern College of Music where he was awarded the Hilda Collens’ prize. He furthered his studies under the guidance of Angela Malsbury and Nicholas Rodwell on a postgraduate degree at the Royal Academy of Music supported by the Countess of Munster Trust.  At the RAM, Keith was awarded the Dorothy Grinstead Memorial Prize for the most outstanding postgraduate, the John Solomon Woodwind and Brass Prize and the Morgensterns’ Award.

Keith has extensive experience as an orchestral musician and has worked with orchestras including the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, London Festival Opera and the BBC Philharmonic under Sir Simon Rattle, Sir Colin Davis, Richard Hickox, Pierre Boulez and Andris Nelsons. As a soloist, Keith has performed concerti by Mozart, Finzi, Weber and Copland in venues throughout the UK.

Keith was selected to participate on the Colin Metters’ International Conducting Course in 2012.  Recent appointments include Head of Wind and Brass at the Birmingham Conservatoire Junior School and Head of Woodwind at Oakham School.  Keith has conducted Sinfonia of Birmingham, The National Schools’ Symphony Orchestra, The British Police Symphony Orchestra, Birmingham Philharmonic Orchestra, St Endellion Easter Festival Orchestra and the WorldCon Philharmonic Orchestra at London’s ExCeL Arena. Keith has worked with artists including James MacMillan, Mark Padmore, Roderick Williams and Sarah Fox.

In January 2010, Keith was appointed Music Director of the Worcestershire Symphony Orchestra where he has seen the ensemble grow from strength-to-strength; WSO performs several concerts each season and Keith is a regular guest on BBC Radio Hereford and Worcester promoting the orchestra and classical music amongst the local community. In 2014 WSO commissioned a new Children’s work in the style of Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf entitled The Magic Bojabi Tree which was a huge success. In 2018 WSO performed in Worcester Cathedral in remembrance of the Armistice Centenary. Continuing his passion for music education, Keith worked with primary schools in the area to create a truly remarkable concert. In recognition of his services to WSO, Keith was honoured to be invited by Her Majesty the Queen to a private gathering to celebrate HRH’s Diamond Jubilee in Worcester.

As Principal conductor of Kimichi Symphony Orchestra, Keith received a 5 star review for his performance of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, “Slade’s rehearsal technique is undoubtedly persuasive, and his beat here was clear, histrionic and totally effectual” (Birmingham Post, January 2018.) He subsequently took the production to the Rudolfinum in Prague, and has since conducted Verdi’s Requiem with KSO which received another 5 stars “performance was spine tingling from the start.”

Keith is delighted to offer his services to the Royal Porcelain Works and help bring something different to our incredible venue and to the city of Worcester.
