Last Saturday, eleven talented young musicians aged 8 to 18 showcased their skills and raised over £1,000 for charity. A packed audience were thrilled and delighted by the performances of mainly classical works. Either side of the interval when canapés were served by the young people, Shona Beecham gave a virtuoso performance on the violin. The evening ended with an excellent guitar duet by Craig Lamport and Scott Caldwell-Nichols with a piece of music that Craig had written. Ant and Dec couldn't make it but they weren't missed! Sam Wright and James Hanson did an excellent, informative but light-hearted job as comperes. Ant and Dec have good cause to be worried.
The Youth Music Concert was in aid of the Alfan Foundation, set up by church members Alfons and Anne Hanson. It raises funds to ship much needed resources to schools and orphanages in Ghana. For the Alfan website, click here. For the details of the concert programme and performers, click here.
