Guildhall Improvisers’ Workshop: The Music of Geri Allen featuring Annette Walker

Tue 5 Dec 2023
Silk Street Music Hall, Guildhall School of Music and Drama,
Silk Street, London, EC2Y 8DT

Guildhall Improvisers’ Workshop, directed by saxophonist and composer Trish Clowes, present a programme of Geri Allen compositions and newly devised music inspired by her distinctive versatility, exploratory musicality and educational legacy.


The Improvisers’ Workshop is a Guildhall School group focusing on creative jazz improvisation, approaching the jazz ensemble as a malleable vehicle for contemporary composition.

This performance will feature tap dancer Annette Walker. Walker’s invitation to feature in this concert is inspired by Geri Allen’s composition ‘The Dancer’, and a live performance with Allen’s trio and tap dancer Maurice Chestnut in 2009 (Geri Allen & Timeline Live).

Annette Walker MA BSc (Hons) DipHE is one of the leading exponents of a generation of tap dancers taking the stage with grace, style, and above all, rhythm.

In 2019, Walker appeared at the BBC Proms, featuring as a tap soloist in a concert of Duke Ellington’s Sacred Music at the Royal Albert Hall. (Accessed Dec 2023)
