Music returns to quiet places around Grantham
Music in Quiet Places returns to some of our most beautiful village churches in the area this summer.
This year’s concerts span midsummer with a wealth of music in churches in Uffington, Corby Glen, Ropsley, Denton, Caythorpe.
Guitarist Simon Thacker brings a flavour of the exotic to the opening concert in Music from the East on Thursday, June 4, at St Michael and All Angels, Uffington.
The traditional rivalry between England and France is the butt of the Carnival Band’s eclectic musical skills and humour which they will performat St John the Evangelist Church in Corby Glen on June 18.
France, however, wins the day musically with Trio Anima and music that is characteristically French, and perfect for a summer evening. Trio Anima perform at St Peter’s Church in Ropsley on July 2.
Up and coming vocal group Renaissance take a longer term look at rivalry by mixing old and new music in an ingenious programme on July 16 in St Andrew’s Church, Denton.
Finally, moving into the realm of imagination, Meridian Brass delve into the fantastic world of stories and Midsummer Night’s dreams at St Vincent’s Church in Caythorpe on July 30.
All concerts take place on a Thursday at 7.30pm. Refreshments will be available during concert intervals. These are provided by the churches, and proceeds go to church funds. Seating in all churches is unreserved. Concert-goers are welcome to take a cushion or a rug with them.
There is £2 off each ticket if you book for three concerts or more.
Music in Quiet Places is promoted by South Kesteven District Council.
