Music on the Hill is delighted to welcome the CNS Allstars to perform in the Chapel at Kingham Hill School on Saturday 9 November 2013 at 7:30pm as part of its autumn series of concerts. The jazz band was formed in 2007 by a former KHS pupil and the school's first organ scholar, Alex Chalstrey, who will be returning to KHS to perform.
The CNS Allstars are a locally based band who enjoy playing a unique blend of swing, jazz and rock ‘n’ roll, with tunes ranging from those of Nat King Cole and Dean Martin to Paolo Nutini and Mark Ronson.
