Community work

The Clerkenwell Singalong is an initiative created during lockdown in collaboration with Peel (http://www.peelinstitute.org.uk/). It’s a big step up from singing in your bathroom, and a safe place to gain confidence – all singers have to be muted during songs – but a fun place to meet others and to connect through some lovely music. Zoom sessions take place(s) every fortnight, Tuesday at 6pm. Upcoming sessions:  20 October,  3 November, 17 November.
For more information,  CONTACT Gisela, or join our Facebook group here.

Performing

Events and concerts inspire listeners and performers alike, as they awaken and strengthen our passion for music making. They are such an amazing opportunity  for sharing music – they may stimulate us, soothe us, move us to tears or lift our spirits. We connect as human beings, on a deeper level. During those special moments we might even feel that we have left our every-day world, for a time.

If you too feel inspired by classical music, have a browse through the website. Gisela loves connecting to people through music – she performs in the UK and beyond. In London, she organises her own series of regular concerts, at St. James’ church in Islington, London.

Are you a promoter or organiser of concerts? Browse and listen to videos here.

Crossover work

In May 2015, Gisela was the pianist of  “Sohini and Mahival” (composed by Baluji Shrivastav and Dario Marianelli) which was performed at the Southbank. This story, told in Urdu, combined opera, dance and puppetry, the music style merges Indian  with European tradition, which was also reflected in the choice of instruments.

Gisela works closely with singer and songwriter Aidan Crowley and has produced piano backing tracks for several albums for him as well as actor/singer Tom Sutton.

Are you looking for a pianist or singer who is keen to explore the blending of all kinds of music and is up for collaborating in a mix of styles or with other performing arts? Get in touch to discuss your project.
