Church concerts

Tuesday 3rd June 2014

TWO very different types of musical concerts will take place in West Farleigh Church in the coming weeks.

On Friday June 6, Dr Jazz will be making a welcome return to the village in the first of two concerts organised by the Friends of All Saints' Church.

A year ago, this eight-piece jazz band had the church rocking, with their foot-stomping performance which filled the church with sound and was thoroughly enjoyed by the audience, both young and old. 

Dr Jazz love their music and it comes across in their presentation. The band has been around in Kent for a long time and in November last year, they celebrated 40 years of performing.

On Saturday June 28, there is a rare opportunity to hear the 18 singers of the Dawn Chorus.

Formed in 2007 as an offshoot of Sutton Valence Choral Society, the group gives just three or four concerts a year in Maidstone and around the Weald. The choir is conducted by Maidstone-based Nancy Litten, a highly experienced singing teacher, examiner and choral conductor, and performs a wide range of secular and religious music from 15th to 20th century. This includes a mixture of popular and less well-known pieces, from Renaissance polyphony to numbers from musical shows and films in which the audience gets a chance to take part.

Tickets are now available for both events – with a combined discount for both – from Jacky on 01622 236421or from the Good Intent on the Green at West Farleigh or online at
