Summer Concert July '17
What a balmy night! -in every sense of the word! It was a perfect summer's evening and our audience filled every available seat. We were accompanied on the piano by Paul Matthews, on the double bass by John Hoskins and on flutes were Kim Derry and Philip Stewart-Johns.
Our repertoire was as varied and as fun as ever ranging from Life on Mars to King of the Road, from Bach to the Beatles! We even managed to entice the audience to wave their flashlights and sing along to Pitch Perfect's Flashlight and then in a rousing finish and all standing (audience included,) of the Hallelujah Chorus. how we managed to fit in so much in the space of an hour I'll never know. But the amazing and most wonderful highlight was the generosity of the audience who gave £1300 to our chosen charity, Aprender. A fantastic charity that improves the lives of the poorest children and young people through education, not just in Brazil and the Lebanon but here in the UK -schools are queuing up to adopt the scheme that Aprender has set up. A fantastic night was had by all and ready for a well-earned rest...roll on September!
