Lauded by The Strad for her ‘beguiling... thrilling and exuberant’ Royal Festival Hall debut, we are honoured to welcome back violist Shiry Rashkovsky to Royal Holloway. Her recent recording of Kate Whitley’s Viola Concerto withMulti Story Orchestra and Christopher Stark for NMC Records was described as ‘fearless’ in The Guardian and has been featured on BBC Radio 3. She has performed in such venues as the Royal Festival Hall, Barbican, Royal Albert Hall, and Cadogan Hall, and further afield, Tokyo’s Suntory Hall, Paris Theatre Champs Elysee, Berlin Philharmonie, among others.

The recital features works by women from both sides of the Atlantic, celebrating different forms of expression spanning the past three centuries to today.

£12.50 (concessions available). Tickets available on the door or book online.
