Saturday Morning Recital

Updated: Jan 10, 2019

24th November 2018

An early start on the train to Blackheath, London was needed for this recital at a residential care home. However, it was worth it when we were greeted very warmly by a full room of residents who had chosen to attend, all eagerly anticipating what we might be due to perform. The programme we presented was, as usual, a varied mix of classical pieces and more contemporary songs. It included 2 arrangements originally prepared for our recent concert commemorating the First World War Centenary:

* The Banks of Green Willow - George Butterworth (who fought and sadly died in the trenches)

* Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy - made famous by The Andrews Sisters

Both were well received, and we had a particularly lovely conversation with one gentleman who had enjoyed our more jazzy numbers, having at one stage been a keen trombonist!
