Large audience justifies move to church

An audience of nearly 100 enjoyed the concert by folk duo Michell and Vincent last Sunday- 27 January.

‘We took the decision to move the concert from the small church hall into the much larger church’, says Celia, one of the organisers, ‘otherwise we would have been sending people away!’

This was a typical comment: ‘Wonderful afternoon . . . .  Great to see such a big and appreciative audience particularly.’

Gill Sayzeland has a go at one of Colin Block’s extensive collection of trumpets while Colin blows the hose pipe on which he played Jeremiah Clarke’s famous Prince of Denmark’s March (aka the Trumpet Voluntary) in a varied and uplifting programme of music from mediaeval to modern.

Colin comments, ‘Please tell Gill that she has more potential than she realises to play the trumpet.  It’s never too late!’

The concert included Linda Stocks on the ‘cello and Jacquelyn Bevan on keyboards, accompanying Colin as well as playing solo and together- particularly memorable in Saint-Saëns’ The Swan.
