The final St Mary’s Music Afternoon for 2017 is promising to be a very special Christmas treat.
Concert pianist Judith Lambden will be returning by popular demand, joining well-known harpist Cath Connelly and singer/guitar duo Michael and Karen, as the feature artists for the event.
The music afternoons are held throughout the year with the gold-coin donation admission fee supporting the upkeep of the lovely St Mary’s church, and to provide an afternoon of acoustic music for locals and visitors.
Organiser Jeff Willmott said the music afternoons featured mainly local artists, with some guest artists from further afield from time to time performing a variety of genres from classical and folk music to poetry.
Part of the appeal of the afternoon is its back to basics format.
“It’s all acoustic, so no microphones or sound systems at all,” Jeff said.
“It’s just beautiful acoustic music and the artists love it.
“There’s no mucking around with mics, just pure harp, piano or voices and the acoustics in the church are excellent.
“It makes for a really special afternoon of music.”
Among all the hype and hurly-burly of Christmas, a couple of hours of beautiful music among friends may be just what’s needed to set the scene for a relaxing and enjoyable Christmas.
A delicious afternoon tea is provided.
The Music Afternoon is on Sunday, 17 December from 2pm. St Mary’s is opposite the tennis courts in Warburton.
