The church is regularly used for concerts and we are delighted to host a weekly lunchtime concert programme from May to October, which features renowned and varied classical and jazz musicians.
Concerts in the 2018 season will be on Thursdays at 1pm and last approx one hour. Admission is free, but there is a retiring collection to cover costs.
The 2018 season will open on Thurs, 31st May with a celebration of our newly restored Hill organ given by our Director of Music, Jon Rawles. It has been some time since our magnificent organ was heard at full capacity, so don’t miss this opportunity to hear it in its full splendour. There will be another organ concert later in the season (August 30th) when our Organ Scholar, Jamie Andrews, will be showcasing his amazing talents.
One of the highlights of the classical programme will be the first appearance at All Saints of the brilliant young trumpeter, Imogen Hancock, with her regular playing partner, pianist Jennifer Hughes. We are very fortunate to obtain the services of these two exciting young musicians, so don’t miss this date: July 5th. Also in the season are several popular musicians making a welcome return to All Saints including pianists Philip Dyson (July 19th), Maureen Galea (Sept 27th) and John Bruzon (Oct 11th). The all-female flute quintet, Sussex Flutes, return on Aug 9th.
The jazz programme, now such an important part of the city’s jazz scene, features a fantastic line-up of some of the UK’s top jazz musicians including tenor saxist/clarinettist Mark Crooks with his quartet on June 14th, altoist Allison Neale on July 12th, altoist Geoff Simkins with Nikki Iles (piano) and Dave Green (bass) on Aug 2nd, pianist Dave Newton on Sept 13th and tenorist Karen Sharp on Oct 25th. All this plus Brighton’s own Terry Seabrook (piano) on June 28th and drum legend Spike Wells on Aug 23rd.
And more to come!
