Friday 28 September 7.30pm: Country Concert

Nashville singer Stephen Simmons and guitarist Dave Coleman

Ten albums into an already acclaimed career, Stephen Simmons has sharpened his rootsy folk-rock style, that mixes the twang of country music — a genre that provided the soundtrack for his childhood in small-town Tennessee — with the sharp observations of a singer/songwriter and the stomp of rural, roadhouse rock & roll. The stories provide a backdrop for Simmons’ distinctive voice, an 'alt-country croon', inspired by everyone from Don Williams to Bruce Springsteen. Tickets available from Eventbrite here. 

 

Sunday 30 September 10am

This concert brings to you the voices and music of those who participated in and lived through the Great War in a moving and emotional performance exactly 100 years after the Armistice. Drawing on the personal reminiscences of ordinary people and contemporary soldiers' songs and music, a choir of 55 adults, a children's choir of 35 from the Unicorn school in Kew, a professional orchestra of 15 players under the direction of West End musical director Michael Reed and a number of professional guest soloists together with the actor Simon Shepherd as the narrator, will draw you in to an emotional and enjoyable evening which is a fitting commemoration of those who fought and fell in the Great War.

There are two perfomances on Sunday 11th November at 4:30 and 7:30pm.

The 2014 concert to mark the start of WWI (photos www.iknewasimplesoldier.weebly.com) was a complete sell-out, so it is strongly recomended that you get your tickets early!

Sunday 9 December 7pm Second Sunday Concert

The Alfred and Salamanda Sax Quartet 
Doors and the bar open at 6.45pm. All second Sunday concerts are free so do come and join us to hear this fabulous quartet who were extremely popular last time they played at St Paul's! The Quartet are Amanda Lakin (Soprano Sax), Alan Lakin (Alto Sax), Sally Shaub (Tenor Sax) and Fred Shaub (Baritone Sax). They are friends who met at the Royal Academy and Royal Colleges of music, and the spark that ignited the creation of the ensemble was a street party in Wimbledon to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee! They have since played in many events and perform a wide repertoire of music from renaissance to contemporary in many different styles.
