Our Piano Accompanist
We are pleased to welcome our new accompanist Jo Kemsley. Jo says,'I've been playing the piano since I was four years old, and studied Music at Bristol University. Past piano experiences are too numerous to mention here; but in 2018 I have played Elfrida Andree's Piano Quartet in Tokyo, performed Chopin's Cello Sonata in Aix-en-Provence, and played the keyboards for a big band at various gigs around London. I teach the piano in the Dartford area.'
