Gala Concert held in aid of Neighbourhood Care SchemePosted on 20th March 2017 by Sean de Podesta
A big thank you to everyone involved in the Gala Concert in February, particularly:
• Rachel Fryer and Music & Wine at St Luke’s for organising the event
• All the musicians for giving so freely their time and talent
• The Mayor of Brighton & Hove, Pete West, and his wife, Geraldine, who attended
• The audience whose generosity raised £450
The evening began with a speech by the Mayor and ended with a spirited rendition of the third movement of Haydn’s Gypsy Rondo by the Sussex Chamber Ensemble. In between we were treated to virtuoso playing on the flute and clarinet, moving singing and impressive jazz improvisation. A great night’s music!
This was the third concert that Music & Wine at St Luke’s have put on for the Neighbourhood Care Scheme. It is great that local groups (they play in St Luke’s Church on Queen’s Park Road, Brighton) are supporting local charity Impetus in our work of reducing the problems caused by isolation and loneliness.
Their spring and summer programme of concerts is well worth a visit!
