Annual Classical Concert series on the Marsh and now in Rye thsi Friday!

The JAM Concert Series which each year features classical music at venues on Romney Marsh this year offers a concert on Friday 5th July at 7.30pm in St Mary's Church in Rye featuring Onyx Brass playing music from Gabrieli to Gershwin.

The first concert of this year's series on the Marsh, organised by the charity JAM, is Wednesday at 7.30pm in Hythe, entitled A Sporting Chance.

Following Friday's concert in Rye - a first for the cinque ports town - which will include music by Handel and Bach as well as the two 'Gs', on Saturday 6th July evening, the BBC Singers will be joining Onyx Brass at St Leonard's church in Hythe.

As well as singing 'Rejoice in the Lamb' by Benjamin Britten, and James MacMillan's 'Cantos Sagrados' the concert will feature only the second ever performance of a piece especially called the 'Farthest Shore' written by Paul Mellor - possibly choral music's hottest property - which gets its premiere tomorrow night in St Bride's, Fleet Street.

Friday 12th July will see a performance of Faure's 'Requiem' by the Mousai Singers at All Saints, Lydd. And Saturday at St Mary in the Marsh at 7.30pm there will be 'Music for Strings, Oboe and Tenor'. The concerts will feature Michael Rogalski on oboe, the tenor Adam Sullivan and The Heron Quartet (students at the Guildhall School of Music). And the programme includes work by Vaughan-Williams, Handel, Adler and Bingham.

Tickets for the concerts are £15 and £10, with students paying just £5 but on the door only. Under 18s are free as the JAM charity aims to encourage young people's appreciation of and involvement with classical music.
