Thanet-based choir Cantate will be giving a summer concert at St Augustine’s, Ramsgate, at 7.30pm on 12th July.
Music from a variety of periods will be sung and will focus on the role of women through history in the Church. The concert will celebrate the famous Minster figure, and seventh-century abbess of Minster, and Thanet’s patron saint, St Mildred, as well as other famous female saints. The first half will be sacred music and the second half will be secular.
Pimm’s and other summer refreshments will be served in the Garth during the interval. The Garth, re-opened two years ago, is an atmospheric grassed area in the middle of the cloisters, next to Pugin’s church. Weather permitting, the second half of the concert will take place in this beautiful outdoor setting.
Cantate is directed by Chris Randall who has worked extensively producing music for television and entertainment, as well as being a piano teacher at schools in Kent. Cantate was formed in 1996 and regularly performs.

Tickets are £10 and can be obtained by phone on 01843 592071 or by e-mailing Tickets will also be available on the door.
