with Flute Salad, Fauls' Singers and The Garden Room

Peter Edge made his International debut at the Llangollen International Eisteddford in 2010 when he won the “Vocals aged 15 - 20” class and was featured on S4C television. He has sung as a soloist in St. Paul’s Cathedral, Westminster Abbey and Chester Cathedral, and as part of a choir in St Mark’s in Venice, Brussels Cathedral and York Minster. He has been booked to play the part of Bartolo in the Opera “Marriage of Figaro” in Venice next year. He’s currently studying for a BMus degree at the Royal Northern College of Music. As well as a vocalist, this talented young musician is also an accomplished pianist and Flugal Horn player. 


Flute Salad is the brain-child of local music teacher Claire Hennie to give her pupils (current and former) the opportunity to perform a wide variety of music in public. Claire herself won the Classic FM Music Teacher of the Year Award in 2013. The musicians who make up Flute salad are hugely talented and play to a very high standard. This year’s concert will feature a young flautist Jennifer Ralphs who will be performing a piece she has composed herself. Jennifer is a recipient of a Higher Wych School Trust Grant to enable her to persue her passion for music. 


Fauls’ Singers have been steadily gaining a reputation for excellence over several years. Led by Director of Music David Stokes, the Fauls’ singers have a varied repertoire of sacred and secular music and are a joy to listen to.


The Garden Room is a modern jazz trio with David Campbell on piano, Amanda Wynne vocals and Rob on bass. Their playing is unadulterated fun - great entertainment. 


Don't miss out. Tickets are selling fast and numbers are strictly limited due to the size of the church
