Events July 2017
Concert - Dr Jazz with Lyn Falvey
The second of the 2017 summer concerts is by the ever-popular Dr Jazz with the delicious, smoky, voice of Lyn Falvey. A great evening for jazz lovers - a mix of trad and swing jazz performed with typical jazzmen humour.
Contact: St Mary's Proms Box Office: 01797 362097 firstname.lastname@example.org
Time: 5.00pm - picnic / 6.30pm - performance
Bring your own picnic to this rustic Glyndebourne-style occasion and enjoy the beauty of the Romney Marsh. Then relax in the peace of the church and listen to the arias of Der Frieschutz. "The Devil's Marksman" (Der Freischutz - 1821) is justifiably the most popular German opera in history.
Narrated opera (narropera) weaves Weber's instantly appealing music through its gripping, Grimm-Brothers-like folk-tale.
Please see the attached flyer and refer to our Facebook page @snargatenarropera for more details.
