! Gosport KEY

‘Exists as a non-profit making organisation to provide and promote high quality live traditional jazz in Gosport and surrounding areas. The Club arranges live performances ... by mainly British bands, although there have been visits by bands from as far away as Australia, the USA and Europe.'

 

* Gosport Jazz Club

‘A dedicated group who meet every Wednesday during term time to rehearse and perform great choral music. We put on two formal concerts each year (Christmas and Summer) and a third, lighter event at the end of the adacemic year.’

+ Lee Choral Society

Host a regular series of concerts and recitals: ‘The church’s greatest treasure is the Handel organ. From 1718-1720, Handel was director of music to James Brydges, Duke of Chandos, and commissioned the building of this organ for the Duke’s new house on the Canons estate at Edgware, Middlesex. The builders, Abraham Jordan and his son, were the first to enclose the pipes of the swell organ in a wooden box with a sliding shutter in its front which could be opened and closed by means of a pedal, regulating the volume of sound produced ... Although it has since undergone extensive restoration, four of the stops on the great organ and five on the choir organ are original Jordan work’.
