PUT THIS DATE IN YOUR DIARY
We are pleased to tell you that we will be holding a concert in church on 4th July 2020 at 7 pm. Sovereign Brass has performed at prestigious venues across the country such as Symphony Hall (Birmingham), The Royal Albert Hall (London) and the Lowry Centre (Manchester). Now they will be performing at our church! 😀
They have performed on Radio 5 Live and have also recorded sessions for BBC Radio 2's ‘Listen to the Band’ as well as having appeared in the BBC TV series ‘Dangerfield’ and headlined at the BBC Midlands ‘Mad About Music’ festival. In addition, they have taken part in championships and have titles including the French Open Champions, Midlands Area Champions (2005), and Harry Mortimer Memorial Champions of Great Britain (2008).
We look forward to a good evening's entertainment.
Wendy is a member of the Stourbridge and Midlands branch of the Guild of Glass Engravers. On Saturday 24th August she was a steward at the Guild of Glass Engravers International Exhibition in Holy Trinity Church, Amblecote, Stourbridge. The above image is of a poster showing work by Tracey Sheppard of engraved doors in All Saints, Fulham.
The image to the left shows an engraving by Sally Scott at the Catholic National Shrine of our Lady, Walsingham. Sally's career in glass started with private commissions, moving on to working with interior designs and doing large-scale commissions in hotels. In 1986 she attended a glass architecture conference at the Royal College of Art and this proved to be a turning point in her career.
Her granddaughter, Lily Guy-Vogel, wanted to see Sally's many architectural glass works in-situ so they went on a trip to every church and cathedral where her work is. (Lily has written a book about this.)
Sally Scott has a website if you wish to have a look at her work:
At the exhibition there were fabulous exhibits of engraving, using a variety of techniques. Artists with works on display were: Akemi Adams, Sue Burne, James Denison-Pender, Maciej Dyszkiewicz, Junko Eager, Dominic John Fondé, Jonathan Harris, Louise Hawkins, Amanda Lawrence, Gill Manning Cox, Viv Marshall, Reiko F Nojima, Lesley Pyke, Nicholas Rutherford, Tracey Sheppard, Sandra Snaddon, Geoff Thwaites.
