We are delighted to announce that St Mary’s Church has been chosen as an official venue for Amick Productions’ and will host two concerts this year, one Autumnal concert in October and the other in the run up to Christmas which will welcome the Winter.
The first is on Thursday 19th October and stars X-Factor & G4 star Mike Christie and the hugely talented singer-composer is back on the road with an exclusive solo Autumn Tour!
The evening will feature many well-known classics including opera, pop, musical theatre and self-penned songs from Mike’s debut album ‘to the fore’, plus songs by Gershwin, Elton John, Flanders & Swann, Rodgers & Hammerstein and much more. Bass-baritone Mike Christie shot to fame as a member of multi-platinum selling vocal harmony group G4, who were Runners Up on the very first series of ITV’s The X Factor. An alumnus of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, Mike has performed in musicals in the West End, pantomime across the UK and numerous operatic roles, and has just finished his second summer season at Opera Holland Park in London. He has also written an opera called The Miller’s Wife, which premiered in London in 2013.
The second concert will feature Mary-Jess, who many of you saw at the Longcot Ocktaves evening in 2015. She will be back at St Mary’s on Thursday 14th December at 7:30 pm as part of her 2017 “Winter Tour” which commences this November and December with even more dates and new locations!
Best-known as the winner of the Chinese ‘X Factor’ in front of 70 million viewers, Mary-Jess is also the singer of the official Downton Abbey theme, as well as being the UK Ambassador for The GREAT Britain Campaign in 144 countries around the world.
You can expect an enchanting evening, listening to her beautiful songs and timeless classics in the intimate setting of St Mary’s. Mary-Jess will be joined by at least one special guest and the concert will include seasonal favourites such as Joni Mitchell’s ‘River’ and Frozen’s ‘Let it Go’, as well as songs from her new album ‘Prayer to a Snowflake’, which was released last year to critical acclaim.
Come and warm your soul with Mary-Jess’ warm and soothing tones this winter and get into the Christmas spirit. Mary-Jess wows audiences wherever she goes, so don’t miss out on what promises to be an unforgettable evening.
