Manu Brazo and Bryan Evans will now be performing on Saturday 24 July at 12noon in St Mary's Church.

Hugely popular when he performed at the launch event to celebrate the 2019 Petworth Festival Literary Week, Manu Brazo is a Royal College of Music scholar supported by Dr Michael West. He is currently studying at the RCM with Kyle Horch (who has himself performed in Petworth with the ensemble Counterpoint). Manu completed his undergraduate studies in Seville at the Conservatorio Superior de Música Manuel Castillo with Juan Jimenez.

A spectacular exponent of the classical saxophone repertoire Manu gives us a guide to the instrument’s range in the hands of composers including Ralph Vaughan-Williams, George Gershwin and Manuel de Falla.
