SENIORS FESTIVAL CONCERTS 2019
2-3 OCTOBER 2019
Our Seniors Festival concerts, held this year over two afternoons, allowing each group more performance time, proved most successful. On Wednesday an almost full hall enjoyed music from the Choir and French in Songs both led with great gusto by David Sharples. The Ukulele group led by Minuk Richards, and new to the Concert this year, offered the audience the opportunity to sing along to the Beatles, Johnny Cash and many more – a resounding success .
The Thursday afternoon event was also very well attended. We thank Geoff Parr-Smith and his Recorder consort for the informative introduction to the recorder and for the splendid range of tunes and styles they played. Our evergreen and always popular Allsorts treated the audience to a variety of folk songs and more and were followed by the breezy sound of our new Jazz group. The café style setup of the hall made for a most relaxing afternoon.
As always, thank you to Sandra Mason and her team for the magnificent refreshments on both days. Thank you also to our paparazzo Barry McIntosh for the photographs.
