Chichester Music Society: Chris Beaumont (xylophone) + Derek Garden (piano)

Born into a professional music family, Chris Beaumont began studying piano at the age of 6 with Muriel Jones. Science has been a great interest throughout his life, in particular Astronomy, which was inspired by the work of Sir Patrick Moore.

The pair met and started a friendship, Chris eventually following Patrick’s influence and taking up the xylophone, turning professional in July 2011. Chris was given the role of Sir Patrick’s Music Archivist in 2013.

This evening’s concert will feature a variety of original works by Patrick Moore as well as arrangements of various composers’ works, some of which share a connection with Sir Patrick.

Tickets: £15, advanced bookings only on 07973 410407 or via the link below. No charge for University students or faculty.
