Music at St Mary's - 2019
In 2018 our music concerts raised £1,117 for Essex Air Ambulance and the outreach work of this church. We are grateful to all who contributed and enjoyed the good range and balance of music making.
Violin, Voice and Piano
This year is our 25th year, and we begin the season with Cantabile on Saturday, 23 March at 3pm. Sophie-Anne Chaplin who is a Trinity graduate together with Andrew Liddell will perform Violin, with Stephen Evans playing Piano.
Sophie-Anne has performed in concerts with Stephen Evans for us before, and will delight us at this concert with her singing too. There will be well known tunes to enjoy on a Saturday afternoon in St Mary’s Parish Church.
Tickets £10 on the door, to include interval refreshment.
This year our charity will be The Samaritans.
