Sunday 31 March 2019
Time: 3 pm
Venue: Pilkington Open Space Lecture Theatre,
Medway Campus, University of Greenwich
Medway in The Mood performed by the University of Greenwich Big Band, takes you on a nostalgic journey through 100 years and more of the music that is sentimental, jazzy, patriotic, brassy, romantic with a program that includes new arrangements of much later modern popular music in the swing and Big Band style. Listen to favorites from Glenn Miller, Cole Porter, Bennie Goodman, Scott Joplin, Rosemary Clooney, Irving Berlin and even ABBA. Repertoire includes classic & Latin jazz, blues, pop and some show tunes.
Linked to this timeline of music will be an audio visual presentation highlighting events in history of Chatham and the Medway area.
This year the concert is on Mother’s Day. Do something different for mother(s) in your life and bring them and their families to this fabulous concert at the historic Chatham Dockyard campus
