Nearing target, the appeal total now stands at £9,480.22, so it is quite possible that you can help it top the £10,000 over the next 2 weeks. The next event, in a series of events, is a Maytime Melodies concert. The concert programme includes music by
- Rogers & Hammerstein,
- Lloyd Webber,
- Gershwin, and
- Humperdinck (not the pop singer).
It will begin with a duet from the Magic Flute by Mozart and end with The Sandman’s song from Hansel and Gretel by the German composer Engelbert Humperdinck. In between there will be songs from comic opera and modern day musicals; there will something for everyone.
Taking place in the Old Church on Saturday 13th May between 6 – 7pm, the concert features soloists:
- Elizabeth Cobb – soprano & flautist, and
- Tom Cogan – baritone,
… accompanied by Penny Marsden on the piano.
Doors open from 5pm when refreshments, wine & soft drinks will be available. Tickets cost £5.00 and are available from:
- Teresa – 01206 241878,
- Jane – 01206 240167,
- Gill – 01206 240512, or
- Carrie – 01206 240466, or email [antibot mailto=”[email protected]”].
All proceeds will go to the Keep The Bell Ringing Appeal.
