The Sara Dowling Quartet perform “The Music of Judy Garland and other Jazz Classics”
Gifted with immensely emotional vocals, her influences are wide and far-reaching.
Born from an Irish father and Lebanese mother, she was surrounded by the turning records of her father’s jazz collection and the chant like voice of Lebanese singer Fairuz and Umm Kalthoum blaring out of her mother’s radio.
Now one of the U.K’s leading jazz vocalist, she is a regular performer at London’s prestigious Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club and the 606 Jazz Club.
She is known for her interpretations of classic ballads leaving audiences spell bound as well as the energy and vigor with which she tackles the up tempo standards from the American Song Book.
Sara’s album From Shadows Into Light received five star review from Jazz Journal who said “A vocal with timeless quality”
Mojo magazine wrote ‘Enigmatic, beguiling and intensely musical’
Well known composer/Arranger Guy Barker wrote, “Her voice has all the qualities that you find in the great singers”
Book a table for pre-concert dining
Acapela Studio provides pre-concert dining between 6.00pm and 7.30pm from our wood burning pizza oven. To view the current menu visit here.
Please purchase your concert tickets first before booking a table. We will not accept any table bookings that do not have a corresponding ticket purchase.
Then return to the event page to book your table, by selecting the date of your event, number of diners and time you require table. The times shown are the only vacancies left. Please complete your email and phone number as this is required to ensure your table is allocated. You will receive confirmation of your booking by email and text.
If on the date you have chosen no tables are available - no times will be shown and the booking system will revert you back to todays date - PLEASE ENSURE YOU BOOK THE CORRECT DATE!
PLEASE NOTE THE VENUE RELIES ON THE INCOME FROM DINING TO ENSURE WE CAN BOOK ALL THE GREAT ACTS PERFORMING.
Income from the provision of pizzas is very important to the venue and if you have booked a table it is a requirement that all people sat at tables order food - a salad alternative is available to pizzas. Please do ensure that all individuals will be ordering on your table - if this is not the case please cancel your table so others who are looking to dine can do so. Our apologies to raise this but recently we have had many tables (some very large) where less than 50% of those sat at tables have ordered food. Financially this is a real problem to the sustainability of the venue.
- All seating at tables must purchase a pizza - so please do not book a table if everyone is not eating.
- Please ensure that you arrive 10 minutes before the time slot allocated to order your pizzas prior to your booking time.
- Tables not seated within 15 minutes of the allocated time may be lost and allocated to other audience members wishing to order pizzas.
- If you wish to book a table for 6 or more please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that all of our pizzas are made fresh to order and cooked in an authentic wood-fired oven. It may take up to 45 minutes to be served during busy periods.
IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO BOOK A TABLE YOU CAN STILL ORDER PIZZAS ON THE NIGHT (USUALLY ON BUSY NIGHTS NO LATER THAN 7.15PM) AND WE WILL SERVE THEM TO YOU WHEREVER YOU ARE SAT IN THE VENUE - IN A PIZZA BOX.
