An evening with David Campbell


The Friends of St Peter’s, Newenden will present a very special opportunity for music lovers with an evening with international clarinettist David Campbell on Friday, March 29 at 7:30pm.

The Friends have established a pattern of inviting well-known musicians to talk about their careers and share stories of their lives. James Bowman, Mark Deller and Richard Suart have all delighted sell-out audiences, playing extracts from their recordings and recounting anecdotes from their performing lives. In addition to telling us about his life, David has promised to play live in the church and will include music for all tastes, including some jazz.

David Campbell is best known to Classic FM listeners for his recordings of the Clarinet Concerto by Finzi with Aurora Orchestra conducted by Nicholas Collon (also rated joint best version in Gramophone magazine) and Camilleri’s Concertino with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.

David is the older brother of Friends’ committee member Jane Dawson, and she has been able to use her influence to entice him to take time from his busy schedule to help raise funds for the maintenance and improvement of the fabric of St Peter’s. With various expensive items requiring attention, including part of the roof and the electrics, the fundraising of the Friends is as important as ever.

Tickets for An Evening with David Campbell are £15 for adults, but special rates are available for the under-16s. Please contact Anthony Dawson, 01797 253632, or email
