Christchurch Folk Music Club
Glass Heart Choir
Ian Williams and Katie Mosehauer are the Glass Heart String Choir (formerly The Thoughts), a classically-influenced duo that write emotionally-charged, cinematic songs.
Their music is rooted in the fraught and introspective narratives woven into Ian’s lyrics and melodies, with each song colored by varying soundscapes of violins, viola, cello, harp, piano, harmoniums, and organ, which are all composed, performed, and recorded by Katie.
Their combined creative efforts yield songs that are intense, dramatic, and moving, and have been compared to everything from Jeff Buckley and Radiohead to classical opera.
Doors open 7pm. Performance starts at 7.30pm, you will get a seat if you arrive close to 7pm.
