Fundraising jazz night for St George’s

 

Church Blue Jazz Quintet to raise money for lighting fund, report Nelly Stavropoulou and Maria Loupa

 

St George’s hosts a jazz evening this weekend in aid of the church’s lighting fund.

Blue Jazz Quintet (Karen Rann on soprano sax, Jeff Smith on tenor sax, Chris Finch on piano, Dave Parker on double bass and Michael Howard on drums) will be performing this Saturday, 26th November in St George’s Church Hall from 7pm.

Organisers say that despite the good acoustics that the Grade 1 listed church offers, many of the choirs and orchestras wishing to perform there are discouraged because of inadequate lighting facilities – extra lighting needs to be hired each time there a musical performance takes place.

Tickets can be purchased from the church office or at the door. Tickets cost £15 each (or £12 for Friends of St George’s members). The price also includes supper – home-made soup and rolls, plus sausages in buns.
