Saturday 23 July, 7.30pm: Sounds of Summer

Schubert lieder and English songs with piano and violin

Songs and chamber music by Schubert, Mozart, Vaughan Williams, Holst, Frank Bridge and Peter Thorogood make up the main part of this programme which is framed by less well known songs for baritone, violin and piano  by Louis Spohr, Carl Reinecke and Christian Sinding (he of The Rustle of Spring) – the last a short but Wagnerian epic!

Saturday 15 October, 7.30pm: The FB Pocket Orchestra

Blues, Ragtime, Jazz, Songs and Dances

By popular demand the incredible POCKET ORCHESTRA returns to St Mary’s. These three multi-talented young musicians released their first album in 2012, with the aim of presenting a contemporary slant on popular music from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Working backwards from the music of the 1930s they developed a joyous sound that spans a wide range of musical tastes. A unique, toe-tapping experience!
