Fri Jun 24th 2016, 7:30–9:30 pm ◀ This event has finished
St George’s Bristol, Great George Street, Off Park Street, Bristol BS1 5RR


Each ‘Sin and Virtue’ has a narrative and a piece of music representing it. In an especially composed text, narrator Juwon Ogungbe wryly delivers short introductions to compositions by leading composers played by AJSW’s own Chamber Music Ensemble and musicians; with a surprise or two along the way!

Venue: St George’s Bristol

St George's Bristol was built in the 1820s and was originally known as the church of St George's Brandon Hill. When the church fell into disuse in the 1970s, it was taken over by a group of local music enthusiasts who turned it into a popular concert venue. The building was extensively refurbished in 1999, and has established itself as one of the country's leading venues for a diverse range of musical genres.

It is situated not far from Bristol Cathedral, a short walk from Park Street. The entrances are on Great George Street (Box Office entrance) and Charlotte Street (disabled access).
