A Fanfare for Penge and West Beckenham!
- Created: Monday, 16 July 2012 13:01
Our Summer finale was a fabulous occasion and it was great fun to work with the Crystal Palace Band again and with Royston Primary School Choir for the first time!
There was truly something for everyone, with the smile-inducing "Bananas in Pyjama Trio" sung by the Junior Choir and Royston Primary School Choir to the spooky "Frankenstein" performed by Youth Voices and the mellow "A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square" sung by the whole Company which included a beautiful solo by Bonnie Callagham!
The Royston children made a big contribution and a HUGE sounds for their number - well done to them! After the concert, Esther Moorey, Head of Music at Royston Primary school, spoke with enthusiasm of their participation in the joint event:
Our thanks go to Canon Derek Carpenter, who kept the whole thing going and gave us a lot of support by his links between the items.
Well done to Cliff Watkins
Finally, well done to Cliff Watkins, who masterminded the entire project. Cliff has a great passion for local people and their lives and this event was a wonderful celebration of local life!
