Wednesday Lunchtime Concerts

May 24 Soundbites Poster

Soundbites, as its name suggests, combines a selection of soups, rolls, sandwiches, cakes and hot drinks available from 12:00 with a short (35-45 mins), unticketed, admission free concert at 1:00 pm.

Due to the impact on our finances of the pandemic, and the healthy state of our Music Development Fund, proceeds are being used to support the work of the church for the moment. Concert series dates normally match school term-times.

Our Summer Season begins on Wednesday 1st May and runs until 26th June.

Details of the first half of the season are given below.

Alastair Penman
Jonathan Pease

Music by Andy Scott; Erik Satie; Amy Quate; Claude Debussy & Alastair Penman

Alastair Penman (Saxophone) and Jonathan Pease (Piano) first met whilst studying at Cambridge University and have gone on to lead successful careers both individually and as a duo. Having previously performed together in many varied ensembles, the duo first formed for a short residency performing recitals on board P&O ship Arcadia, and have since gone on to perform many concerts on land as well as at sea!

Outside of the duo, Alastair is Professor of Saxophone at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and a regular guest tutor at conservatoires in the UK and abroad. Jonathan meanwhile is much in demand as an accompanist and musical director, as well as being a prolific composer and active conductor and church musician. In this recital the duo will perform music from Alastair’s 2024 album, Quietude, which invites the listener to take time for themself, to unplug from the digital world that we live in and to find solace in the beauty of music and of nature. The disc has been praised by critics as “a project that reaches out and touches us all”.
