In case you are not familiar with HJF:

HJF provides musicians of all levels with the opportunity to perform in public in friendly and supportive surroundings. The Legion’s excellent bar facilities contribute to providing a great evening’s entertainment. How does it work? More experienced musicians may be chatting with friends and decide they want to play a particular tune and so talk to the man with the clipboard (often Andy or me) to book a spot. Others may come along having rehearsed something that they want to play. Again, a spot or even a mini-set of 2 or 3 numbers may be possible. Less experienced players may not have the confidence to do this, but they are welcome to take part in the open numbers which are published before each session. These players can join in playing the tune and even try improvising. On the other hand, if this seems to much there is no obligation to play even if they are already on stage. If you don’t play an instrument or sing just come along for an evening of jazz music in a friendly atmosphere.

Music from the English Renaissance


Out of the blue we have been asked to host a concert by The Renaissance Choir. Here is an extract from their website (www.renaissancechoir.org.uk):


Welcome to The Renaissance Choir. We are a chamber choir of around 34 singers based in Hampshire / West Sussex. We rehearse in Emsworth, perform at beautiful venues in and around Portsmouth and Petersfield, and go on tour every year to Europe and the UK. We specialise in Renaissance choral music but we also enjoy singing more contemporary choral works from composers such as Whitacre, Lauridsen, Rutter and Poulenc. We mostly sing a cappella.

We perform several concerts a year locally and have sung at many prestigious venues in the UK and abroad, including in Italy, France, Holland, Hungary, Portugal and Poland. We have a high reputation for our sublime sound and adventurous repertoire.
