A birthday celebration

The composer and singer Ian Carpenter's 40th birthday is marked in a celebration of his music at All Saints' Church, Clifton, sung by Exultate Singers.

Often inspired by jazz harmonies and always tuneful, Ian's music is accessible and easy to listen to, but a formidable intellect and attention to detail behind it means it has a depth of quality to the writing that rewards repeated listening.

His pieces are frequently performed in concert by many ensembles including Bristol's Exultate Singers, and appear on both the choir's CDs.

All Saints' Church, Pembroke Road, Clifton, Bristol BS8 2HY


Entry to the concert is free and no tickets are required. There will be a collection for the All Saints' Church Organ Appeal.
