Sounds still to come…

Nearly three thousand tickets have been bought for Wanstead Fringe events so far this year, but there are musical gems still to come which people will not want to miss.

On Saturday there is a concert by the award-winning Redbridge Brass at St Gabriel’s church.

On Sunday there is an afternoon concert of theatre classics by West End singer Lydia Gerrard at St Mary’s.

On Friday evening, in a 60-minute concert, local composer Simone Spagnolo presents a live performance of his album Low Strings Drama. A combination of mystery soundtrack-meets-chamber music, the event is in the United Reformed Church on Nightingale Lane.

And then the final event in this year’s fringe takes place next Saturday – a perfomance of a new musical Dark Isle, with text written by Wanstead actor Katherine Tripp.
