The Lecture Club are delighted to present a Special Concert Performance ‘THE GIRLS IN THE MAGNESIUM DRESS’

The Girls in a Magnesium Dress is a collaboration between two instrument of very different registers… And number of strings!: the double bass and the harp. The former players of this peculiar ensemble,Valentina Scheldhofen (double bass) and Anna Quiroga (harp), met during a rehearsal with the BBCSO between the BBCSO Pathway Scheme, and decided to play together just for fun.

After rehearsing together for a while, they got increasingly captivated by the sound produced by such contrasting sonorities and decided to carry on on investigating repertoire possibilities and textures.
