“A CHRISTMAS CAROL” ALAN BARNES ALL STAR OCTET
December 19 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm
St John’s Church, St. John’s Street, Farncombe, Godalming, Surrey GU7 3EJ
A family night out that is also a treat for the jazz connoisseur; it will delight anyone who loves music or literature – or just Christmas!
This suite of pieces takes the audience through the characters and scenes of ‘A Christmas Carol”. Readings from the original Dickens tell the story, and after each scene eight virtuoso musicians bring the characters and scenes to life, switching audiences from hilarity to pathos with a skill that would have done credit to Dickens himself!
With an all star lineup led by the multi-award winning saxophonist Alan Barnes, whose unique musicianship, indefatigable touring, and warm rapport with audiences have made him uniquely popular in British jazz.
Like the Dickens classic itself, Alan Barnes’s “Christmas Carol” has something for everyone!
