Event details

SHOWCASE is a platform to help give exposure to the talented pre-professional student performers within the Music Department at the University of Southampton. The Music Department has a rich history of developing world-class performers including jazz singer Joe Stilgoe and Mercury-nominated, singer-songwriter Anna Calvi. Our artists are from all genres, an eclectic mix of high-quality music.

Today's opening concert in the SHOWCASE Series features performances from two final-year students.

Pianist Marianne Yacoub presents a programme of music by J. S. Bach, Schubert and Brahms. A pianist from a young age, Marianne has had the pleasure of performing both as a soloist and ensemble player in the UK and abroad in such venues as the Cairo Opera House and Romsey Abbey. Her programme today is an homage to harmony – from its Father through over 150 years

Singer-songwriter Kitty O’Neal released two EPs in 2017, 'A Home' and 'OK', both receiving radio play on BBC Introducing and attracting venues in the South of England where she has supported household folk names Maz O'Connor and Meadowlark. Mixing her folk influences heard in 'A Home' with a love of RnB and electronic sound in 'OK', she is releasing an album in 2018 ahead of her UK summer tour which promises to encapsulate both of these moods in a unique and ever-evolving sound. Kitty's poignant songwriting, paired with a distinct emotive performance, alongside her band makes for a captivating and vibrant live experience, filled with both soulful melancholy and groove. Today, she performs some of her original music with her trio.
