Preview of John Donegan's music on YouTube

TRMS is proud to have a close alliance with the John Donegan Jazz Quartet consisting of John himself on the piano, Steve Fishwick on trumpet, John Donegan on piano, Terry Pack on bass, and Greg McCarthy on drums.

TRMS organised its first jazz concert with John Donegan Jazz Trio on Wednesday, 12th April in Rickmansworth. Due to sickness and injury, the line-up of accompanyment had to be changed last minute - Steve Fishwick on trumpet was unable to participate, Tomaso Staracce, the saxophonist who was planned instead, could not come because of a fractured leg and instead of Terry Pack, Steve Riddle took on drums. This did not alter the wonderful jazz music in the concert or dampen the enjoyment of a large audience. Details on the Past Concerts page

  David Ward & Peter Nall
 

TRMS is proud and privileged to make contact with David Ward, retired Professor of Fortepiano and Piano at Royal College of Music, London.

Since 2006 Peter Nall has been locating and advising on fine stringed instruments and bows for professional performers, teachers, amateurs and students. His keen eye and enthusiasm for beautiful stringed instruments has developed since childhood when he was fortunate to meet many great soloists and orchestral players who were kind enough to show him their wonderful instruments by some of the greatest makers; Stradivarius, Amati, Guarneri, Grancino, Testore and many more.
Peter Nall After 30 years’ experience of performing at the highest level as an orchestral and chamber violinist & with numerous contacts within both the dealership networks and violin making worlds, Peter is able to source the finest stringed instruments from student level to top professional quality, both antique and contemporary.

  Uday Bhawalkar
 

TRMS is pleased to introduce Indian Classical music to the people of Rickmansworth, Chorleywood and other local areas. We are pleased to announce our new relationship with Uday Bhawalkar, one of the principal proponents of Drupad, a dinstinctive discipline in Indian Classical music.

Uday Bhawalkar

Uday Bhawalkar is a standard bearer for Dhrupad, and a strong force in its growing recognition and popularity. Uday believes that when immersed in the notes and raga, the self disappears and music takes on its own existence; the principle of the so-called ‘darshan’ or enlightenment. These values are helping him on the path of devotion to Dhrupad. It is one of the oldest forms of North Indian classical music and Uday captures and maintains its majesty and subtle nuances. It is a living and evolving classical music tradition and Uday has developed a unique style deeply embedded in ragas to express it.

Uday Bhawalkar is happy to support TRMS.

TRMS brings Indian Classical Music to Rickmansworth with Uday Bhawalkar performing on Saturday, 29th July. Details on the Concerts page.

Dhrupad_Music_Society_Logo

The aim of the Dhrupad Music Society of UK is to spread awareness, interest and education in Dhrupad, a unique and ancient form of Indian classical music. We are keen to create opportunities for teaching, mentoring, and training in Dhrupad at all levels of ability.

Since 2000 there have been annual Dhrupad workshops in the UK, conducted by Uday Bhawalkar. From 2015, a group of dedicated Indian Music students set up the Dhrupad Music Society to preserve, protect and consolidate this great tradition.

The society successfully organises annual workshop for Indian Classical music lovers and committed enthusiasts with the help and guidance of Uday Bhawalkar. This gives opportunity for students from a wide range of different backgrounds, abilities and styles of music to learn in depth the intricacies of the Dhrupad tradition.
