Coffee concert at St. George's Beckenham

A morning concert on Saturday the 16th March in a rainswept Beckenham!

The conditions outside were awful but Beckenham Junior Choir were a ray of sunshine inside the church at St.George's....

"Well done to the Junior Choir for their lovely singing this morning!  You
gave a great concert at St. George's, Beckenham.  I certainly think so
(although I am biased), but lots of others told me so, too!

We had music by Benjamin Britten and by his musical editor and local boy
from Beckenham Carey Blyton, whose music we like to feature regularly.  Four
of Carey's poems were also recited, showing his typically mad sense of
humour, which goes down so well with young people (of all ages!).

Thanks to everyone who took part, singers (including some very capable
soloists), instrumentalists on guitar (Mark) and piano, Stuart Kale for
preparing the soloists to the usual high standard.....and also Jo Clegg, our
compere.  

Of the pianists, thanks go to my good friend Nick Jones for accompanying
songs in place of Sophie, who has been ill this week.  The other pianists
were Elizabeth (who leaves us in May) and Megan and Anna  The last two are
members of our young Choirs, who have promising futures.

A final word of thanks to Peter Jones, our host at the Church, who always
manages to pay us for coming!  His encouragement is hugely appreciated and
we enjoy performing in this magnificent building."
