Lunchtime Concerts – December/January


1st December: Le Jazz: Chris Gladwell (clarinet and saxophone) Andrew Barratt (guitar). This is a return visit. They play “gentle” jazz

8th December: Iain McDonald (baritone), Nick Brown (piano). Iain has sung for us before and takes an occasional Sunday service for us. Nick Brown however is new.

There will then be a break until the New Year.

January 5th The artists for this concert were to be Iryna Linytska (soprano) and Sam Baker (piano) but Sam is unable to perform as he has a commitment in London which has cropped up since I arranged our concert. As before when a concert is cancelled this concert will now be given by Josephine Pickering and David Lee (piano duets). We have stepped into the breach several times over the years when there has been a cancellation.

January 12th Mark Hansford (Baritone) with Josephine Pickering at the piano. Mark has sung for us several times over the years.

January 19th Andrew Millington (organ) Andrew was formerly Director of Music and Organist at Exeter Cathedral. He too has played for us before.

January 26th Ruth Pitts (piano). Although Ruth has played for us before that was some time ago so she is making a welcome return,

Numbers attending have not so far recovered to pre Covid levels but they are still sufficient (at about 45) to make it still very worthwhile to continue holding these concerts.
