We’re thankful for an epic musical evening on 7th June 2014.
About 60 people – neighbours, friends, classmates etc – were present to hear “various musical items from performers of all ages”. The two youngest performers – Maggie and Cui Cui (“Choi”) gave us a karaoke number from “Frozen”, followed by an acapella rendition from one of our older members Sylvia Anderson. What a great voice!
Piano and vocals from Katharine Crompton with Katy Melua numbers, closely followed by “Johnny B. Goode” from Aaron Reeves took the tempo up several notches.
The first session was closed by a rip-roaring set from Mark Rayfield (lead vocals), Alex Wells (rhythm and vocals), Philip Wells (bass and vocals) and Aaron Reeves (lead) featuring rocking numbers from the early Beatles era.
The second set featured Alyson and Matt’s beautiful folky songs,
The evening was brought to a breathtaking climax by Ruth Muinde’s atmospheric show-stopping unaccompanied gospel solo.
*There is quite nothing quite like the buzz of live music*
BHT CEO Andy Winter gave a moving appeal and over £200 was raised in donations.
Thanks to all who made food, set up the hall, and contributed in any way. What a great evening!
