Festival of Sound comes to St. George’s

On Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th September, St George’s church hosted the Ramsgate Festival of Sound. On Saturday over 100 people heard Crying Out Loud, a piece of music written by Naomi Hammerton, exploring the power of our tears and how they can help us to connect with each other. The work was performed by Neptunes Choir and Kings Place Choir.

On Sunday, more than 200 people heard several amazing pieces going from the Sea to the Stars – a fabulous piece called Infinity, then the Gagarin Quartet, and finally Anna Phoebe played songs she has written based on her experience of the sea.

As you can see from the photos, the church took on an entirely different hue each night with some amazing uplighters. Many visitors expressed their appreciation of a beautiful church with great acoustics.
