This year we have an added attraction, a new venture to accompany the barbecue. We have secured Nick Raison and Sarah Gallop to play and sing to us. Nick Raison is a highly experience cocktail pianist, solo performer and accompanist with a repertoire mainly from The Great American Songbook and from The Jazz Age.
Sarah Gallop started singing at an early age and gained a Choral Scholarship to Woodbridge School. She went on a world tour with the National Youth Choir. Sarah studied solo singing at the Birmingham Conservatoire under the Mezzo-Soprano Christine Cairns. Sarah has recently featured in many solo classical performances in East Anglia and London with choirs and orchestras.
The contrast between Sarah’s rich soprano singing and natural musicality with Nick’s flowing easy, soft jazz style of Jazz Standards is unusual and a pleasure.
So do book; the 26th Association barbecue should be a great event.
