‘Moments’ is a three-part conceptual concert programme from imaginative song-interpreters Nishla Smith and Tom Harris. Over the course of three concerts in May 2021, Nishla and Tom will tell an unfolding story, shifting perspective from show to show, weaving together beloved songs and original music with new poetry, stories and musical interludes.
In Part 2: The Lark, the story will be picked up from the perspective of a bird flying high above mountains, forests and lakes. As she soars, she tells stories of creatures that inhabit the world of birds, and reflects on her sightings of people down below, until, as dawn approaches, she alights in a garden. Featuring a diverse programme from jazz standards, through musical theatre to reworking of art songs, together they will paint an enchanting vision of a fantasy world.
