Cantacordi Trio @ All Saints Church
Sep 23 @ 1:00 pm – 1:45 pm

Bach to the Beatles

The Cantacordi Trio features Mike Bardsley on piano, Sue Collins on violin and Lyndsay Winpenny on cello. Their name – a variation of “The Singing Strings” reflects their origins as a trio: they met up and started playing together largely through their membership of the Wychwood Chorale, a West Oxfordshire based choir.

Mike is a pianist and harpsichordist who studied at Dartington College of Arts and has played in many ensembles over the years as well as giving solo harpsichord recitals, most recently at the Bate Collection and Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, as well as in Westbury in 2017 and 2018.

Sue started playing the violin aged eleven and played in the Essex Youth orchestra. She now enjoys playing in a variety of ensembles and also plays in Cirencester Philharmonic, Chandos Symphony Orchestra and Cambiata Strings.

Lyndsay has also been playing the cello since she was eleven and has been a member of several orchestras, including the LuxPhil, an amateur orchestra based in Luxembourg. She is a long-standing member of the Burford Orchestra, as well as several local ensembles in Oxfordshire. Both Sue and Lyndsay have immensely enjoyed returning to playing as career and family commitments have permitted.

The Trio plays an eclectic mix of styles, ranging from baroque trio sonatas, which call on Mike’s skills as a harpsichordist, through the classical repertoire of piano trios, to palm court-style arrangements of modern pieces, including show songs, 20th-century classics, jazz and pop. This recital, coined “Bach to the Beatles” reflects the Trio’s enjoyment of many different musical genres.

Alan Burgess & Neil Moore @ All Saints Church
Sep 25 @ 1:00 pm – 1:45 pm

A new duet for the festival – Neil Moore on clarinet and Alan Burgess on piano.

Neil Moore quickly developed a passion for music and went on to study at the City of Belfast School of Music where he was soon playing clarinet in the orchestra.  As a clarinettist, Neil is always very busy regularly playing for concerts and recitals.  When not playing clarinet, Neil is usually directing choirs.

Alan Burgess grew up in a musical family in the ‘land of song’ before heading north to read music at Edinburgh University.  He teaches piano in Somerset and Wiltshire schools and directs and accompanies several choirs, invariably following the baton of Neil Moore.

Denys Le Fevre – a Lifetime in Art @ All Saints Church
Sep 27 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

If you are in the vicinity of All Saints Church on Friday or Saturday, pop in to see the exhibition of Ramsgate artist, Denys Le Fevre.

His work is found in Royal Collections, the Civic Chambers of the Cinque Ports and in books, painting and reproductions, on our walls and even on refrigerators in the UK and all over the world!

Denys  was a modest and successful man and had donated his artwork, which is mostly in pen and ink wash, freely to military and children’s charities. His art combined his love for the sea, ships, design, architecture and the buildings and townscapes of Ramsgate.

There will be works for sale, the proceeds from which will be split between All Saints and the Templar Pilgrimage Trust.

The exhibition is open during normal church opening hours. There will be a free lunchtime concert taking place on the Friday between 1 – 1.45 pm which you are very welcome to enjoy but please note that this is a working church and there may be other events taking place, for example weddings, funerals etc on the Saturday so we ask you to please respect these events and perhaps reschedule your visit.
