PANJIM: Lorraine Music Academy in association with Kala Academy Goa will organize a musical evening – Piano Solo & Piano / Cello Duet with Fali Pavri, Naomi Boole-Masterson and Lorraine Fiona Aloysius at the Dinanath Mangeshkar Kala Mandir, Campal-Panjim at 6:30pm on Tuesday January 4. The entry for the show will be free and seats will be available on first come first served basis.

The two musicians Fali Pavri and Lorraine Fiona Aloysius from UK and India performed in Gurgaon on December 20 and along with Naomi Boole-Masterson would stage their performance in Panjim on January 4.

It was unfortunate that Naomi Boole-Masterson could not arrive on time to perform in Gurgaon due to the severe climatic conditions prevailing in UK / Europe that prevented flights from taking off for days. She has now arrived in India and will perform in Goa on January 4 at Kala Academy, along with Fali Pavri and Lorraine Fiona Aloysius.

Fali Pavri enjoys a busy and varied career as a soloist, chamber musician, teacher and adjudicator. He studied the piano at the Moscow Conservatoire with Professor Victor Merzhanov and at the Royal Academy of Music, London with Christopher Elton.

Naomi Boole-Masterson, a resident of Glasgow, studied at the Royal Academy of Music with David Strange and won all the major cello prizes, as well as being awarded the Dip RAM in 1994. With her husband and duo partner Fali Pavri, she is a frequent performer at the major Music Festivals.

Lorraine Fiona Aloysius, started playing the piano from the age of eight, greatly encouraged and inspired by her mother Helen D’Cruz. Lorraine initially trained in Kuwait under Johnny Gomes. Lorraine has been living in Gurgaon, National Capital Region, India since 2004 and is the Principal and Creative Director of Lorraine Music Academy.

Aubrey Aloysius, founder of the Lorraine Music Academy, says “We have presented to the National Capital Region and now, in collaboration with Kala Academy Goa, we will present to Goa on January 4, 2011 the versatile world musicians Fali Pavri and Naomi Boole-Masterson to inspire us all to appreciate, enjoy and learn music at a new level. We bring good music to the community, not just for entertainment, but for true education and appreciation.”
