Our Steinway and Sons concert piano was made in 1899 when the firm was at the forefront of it’s industry. Steinway pianos are all made with scientific precision and maintained by the love of artists! After many years good service acting as the piano on which most native Norfolkians have taken their piano exams over the last 20 years! Our beloved Joanna needs a bit of an overhaul.
We are looking to raise £3,725 to help us continue to excel as a regional test centre for ABRSM music exams, and to ensure that we can continue to put on top-rate concerts and performances.
The Anteros Arts Foundation is a charity for education and the arts (1135692). We never take our charitable status for granted and we use the fundraising opportunities it affords us to make sure we are offering freely available and meaningful experiences in the Arts. For example, this year the Making Musicians free lunch time concert series offered performance opportunities to exceptional school-age musicians; in February we outreached to Magdalen Gates primary school whose students came here to learn about ‘the orchestra’ and we offered eight affordable seminar sessions called ‘demystifying music’ at just £3 for an hour session on titles which included ‘gender politics at the opera’ and ‘Schubert’s Antihero’. 100% of the procedes from ticket sales for our next concert Jazz: Henrick Jensen will go to the artist to support him to make music and to enable us to offer this fantastic opportunity to hear him in Norfolk.
Money raised through the ‘Save our Steinway’ fund will help us to continue forward a sustainable and effective arts and music centre for Norwich.
£3,725 would cover the following refurbishments:
– new hammer heads and rollers
– levers and wippens to be cleaned and reburnished, the heel felts to be replaced
– ivory and ebony keys plus bat and balance pins to be cleaned and polished
– false covered strings to be replaced
– bench regulation

“Danish bassist and group leader Henrik Jensen is one of a number of European musicians who have now made London their permanent home and it has added a new vibrancy to the already burgeoning London jazz scene. There is an economy of style that is admirable in this new recording from the quartet which succeeds in being both relaxed and intense at the same time. The overall feel echoes mid-1950s Miles as well as post-bop hues” Tim Stenhouse for UK VIBE
Henrik Jensen came to London from Denmark in 1997 to study electric bass at The Musicians Institute. He later transitioned to the double bass and became a student at the Royal Academy of Music on the Under-Graduate Jazz course.
Jensen now leads his own quartet ‘Followed By Thirteen’ which he founded in 2010. The group is about to release their 2nd album ‘BLACKWATER’ in September 2016, which features Andre Canniere-trumpet, Esben Tjalve-piano, and Antonio Fusco-drums. The quartet will be touring throughout the Uk in september, please check website for details.
Henrik Jensen’s rich bass tone has worked all over world from the Blue Note in Tokyo to concert halls in Moscow while still keeping busy on the London jazz scene.
Jensen has a close working relationship with saxophonist Peter Ehwald from Berlin, they recorded in 2008 the album Songs Of Trees with ‘The North Trio’ on 33 Jazz and in 2011 the duo album Jensen/Ehwald, recorded in the Union Chapel (London) He is also a part of ‘The Mauricio Velasierra Group’ (World / jazz), and has recently completed an album with the band. Henrik also plays in the trio NS3 trio lead by Italien drummer Antonio Fusco and UK pianist Bruno Heinen, and they are releasing their debut album on BABEL in february 2017.
For the last 9 years Jensen has also been working with London vocal trio ‘The Puppini Sisters’, whom he has toured with internationally and recorded with for major label Verve, UMG. Jensen is also soon to feature on their up-coming release this year (UMG). henrik-jensen.com

Starting 11th October 7-9pm
Over the course of six workshops, on every second Tuesday of the month, learn to write short stories with C. D. Rose MA (UEA) Chris created “The Biographical Dictionary of Literary Failure” and was the author of the Sunday Times & EFG Bank Award nominated “Arkady who couldn’t see and Artem who couldn’t hear” as well as “Closer” which was read on BBC Radio 4’s ‘The Time Being’ program.
You will learn an appreciation of the predominant narrative structures used by short story writers, and how to implement them in your own work. You will be asked to complete set writing tasks between workshops, and will receive structured, peer-driven feedback; you’ll develop 3 short stories to completion, with tailored advice on how to shape the story, and how to improve the characterisation, dialogue, and narrative voice.
Comma Press, one of the UK’s leading publisher of short fiction is always looking for new voices in short fiction and it’s hoped that this course will unearth and develop contenders for one of their showcases of new writers.
You don’t necessarily need any practical experience of writing stories, nor of supervised creative writing of any kind, but it’s important that you have an interest in, and enthusiasm for, the short story form. To get the most from the course, you should be prepared do some background reading, undertake writing tasks between sessions, read the work of others on the course prior to each session, offer tactful – yet frank – feedback, and receive constructive criticism on your own work.
The course isn’t geared towards any particular sub-genre within the short story form – be it literary fiction, sci-fi, or horror – we’ll be looking at techniques applicable to all these genres.
Please note; this course is not devised to help you write a novel, novella, poetry, micro-fiction, or biography – it’s all about the short story, which presents its own specific demands and opportunities to writers (for the avoidance of doubt, short stories typically weigh in at somewhere between 1500 and 8000 words long, for the purpose of this course we will be looking at stories up to 5,000 words long). Bring along pen and paper, and please note that you will need internet access to upload your stories onto drop box and to read your peers submissions there – if you prefer to read hard copies of these, you will need to print them yourself.
£180 for 6 evenings over 6 months 7-9pm on the following dates, 11th October, 8th November and 13 December all this year, and in 2017 on the 10th January, 14th February and 14th March.
