Coming to Florence Arts Centre is a unique fusion of music and art from jazz duo FuMar and local artist Stephen Warner. There are two parts to the day - a FREE afternoon workshop from 12 noon, followed by an evening concert plus exhibition of the art produced at the workshop at 7.30pm. You can come to either or both of these standalone events - tickets for the evening concert are on sale now at just £5.
FuMarprovisation Jazz & Art Workshop, 12noon to 3pm - Musicians Phil Furneaux and Krys Markowski will join artist Stephen Warner in this unique collaborative improvised art and music session. Starting with a blank canvas and no sheet music, FuMar and Stephen will respond to each other's creative energy, with Stephen painting the music and FuMar 'playing' the painting. This should be a fascinating and unique experience!
Come along anytime between 12noon and 3pm to watch this creative process take shape - if you're an artist and would like to take part by drawing or painting along please email Phil to find out how you can get involved.
FuMar Jazz Concert, 7.30pm - Florence Arts Centre is hosting an evening of cool jazz. FuMar began to perform in the bars of Paris in 2011 and have since toured the North West and France with their unique brand of cool jazz which has earned them a reputation for being innovative, harmonic and melancholic. Their recent concert in Carlisle was described  as like "having the Parisian Left Bank in a drizzly Carlisle. Fumar's music with its relaxed jazz rhythms brought warm sunshine to a grey evening."
Phil Furneaux (sax) and Krys Markowski (piano) draw on their 40 years of friendship to create their music. The trust and security they have allows them to experiment and be innovative. Along with their interpretations of the standards from the likes of Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock. FuMar’s experimental classical / jazz fusion has been compared to the sounds of Jan Garbarek. You don't need to attend the afternoon workshop to come along and enjoy this concert of jazz standards and contemporary tunes.
