St Paul's Sinfonia - new season of concerts

The new season of St Paul's Sinfonia concerts kicked off last Friday - full listing for the coming months is here.

I've been to a couple of these concerts and it's a very pleasant way to spend Friday evening - although I recommend a few big woolly jumpers and some nice warm socks, especially for the winter season. A welcome chance to see inside the church and take your time to admire its Italianate Baroque splendour and rich acoustic - for a sneek peak take a look at this UB40 video which was filmed in the church, and flagged up by Transpontine a little while ago.

Next concert is on Friday 20 November at 7.30pm and the programme is as follows:
Beethoven - Ecossaise and Military March
Haydn - Symphony No. 100 'Military'
Hummel - Trumpet Concerto
Prokofiev - Symphony No. 1 'Classical'

Tickets are £10 or £8 for concessions - get them on the door from 7pm.

Deptford's quite a cultural hub. I went to The Albany for the first time last night for its Urban Screen, and I was very impressed. Mind you, it took me a while to find it, as the can driver dropped me off at the wrong end of Douglas Way.
