Broadstairs soprano Sarah Hale will perform in her first concert in her home town on June 5th.

Soprano Sarah Hale, who recently won her master’s degree in music performance from Canterbury Christchurch University, returns to her home town after a highly successful series of engagements in Holland, Folkestone and the Deal Festival.

Sarah said that singing in Broadstairs will be a “highly emotional” occasion for her. “I have spent most of my life in Broadstairs and I love the town. I'm really looking forward to it.”

Her concert, at the Sarah Thorne Memorial Theatre, will concentrate on the theme of summer love, and include music by Debussy, Roger Quilter, Scottish folk songs such as Down by the Salley Gardens and Ye banks and braes, as well as classic ballads by George Gershwin including Summertime and The Man I Love.

Sarah will also perform some powerful, rarely heard songs from Japan, where she was born. “I love to offer audiences songs from a variety of cultures and in different moods. But throughout the accent will be on an entertaining evening and giving everyone a good time.”

“We've called the concert Summertime Songs,” Sarah added, “and that's the idea, to celebrate this absolutely joyous time of year when beautiful seaside towns, especially towns like Broadstairs, are at their very best.”

“Summertime Songs” is at 7.30 p.m. at the Sarah Thorne Theatre Club, Hilderstone, Broadstairs. Tickets costs £8. To book ring 0845 2626263.
