The afternoon concert on Sunday 22nd September was a great success. Our musicians were Chris Devonport, organ, Faye O’Hara, cornet, Roger Derbyshire, organ, Will Grainger, euphonium, and Alice Derbyshire, flute.
They had selected just eight pieces for us which gave them a chance to demonstrate their respective talents and gave us the chance to hear some great music, some well known, by Albinoni, Mozart, Elgar, Bach, and others less well known or even new to us by Verpeaux, Thalben-Ball, Williams and Donizetti.
The audience filled the nave of the church, and after the music the tea and cakes provided by Jeanette and the Friends of St Mary’s made an ideal opportunity to catch up with old friends and make new friends.
A total of £458 was raised for the life and work of St Mary’s. Thank you to all who helped to make this such an enjoyable afternoon, and especially to our musicians.
