SÓN are delighted to continue our support for Southampton colleagues PLAYLIST – a collective of professional musicians whose whole ethos we love. Many of the team behind PLAYLIST are connected to SÓN – either as players or as education workshop leaders. So, when PLAYLIST got in touch to talk about a collaborative project performing Prokofiev’s Quintet, we were all ears – and so should you be!

Besides, apart from what promises to be a stunning evening of sound and setting, in how many cities outside of Rekyjavik could you hear SÓN and VŌS, on the same stage, in the same evening?!

PLAYLIST – featuring SÓN soloists
PLAYLIST – featuring SÓN soloists

The 2017-2018, Arts Council supported PLAYLIST season continues on Sunday 15th October at one of our favourite Southampton pubs, the lovely The Dancing Man. The night features the astonishing Ayanna Witter-Johnson (voice, cello, piano), an ensemble of soloists from the SÓN orchestra and Alt Pop trio VŌS.

Ayanna Witter-Johnson is a MOBO award nominated vocalist, writer and cellist. Time Out recently said “Ayanna Witter-Johnson has to be heard to be believed. Her self-assured style blends a honey-sweet vocal delivery with bewitching cello-playing.”

SÓN are Southampton’s professional orchestra. Five members of the orchestra (including three PLAYLISTers!) come together for PLAYLIST to perform Prokofiev’s Quintet in G minor for oboe, clarinet and string trio.

VŌS (check out their single ‘Patience‘) are a new electro-pop outfit from London (with Southampton connections!), described as “mellow and mesmerising…(with) sheer class and elegance.” They will perform a stripped-back version of their set for PLAYLIST for a chilled Sunday evening.

It promises to be another eclectic and high quality evening of music, not to be missed…

Come and hear the music we want to hear!
