Peter Green: May 2017
"Well done AMC! Fabulous talent, great entertainment. Thanks to those who worked hard to make a wonderful evening." So tweeted our minister Helen Kirk, after Saturday's Extravaganza concert of talent organised by Pauline Latham and an army of helpers.
It was a real variety show with singing from choral, a capella, and Zimbabwean groups, duets and solos, music from opera to pop, from classical to African and from ballads to show music. There were instrumental solos on violin, cello, organ and guitars and comedy from comic poems, sketches and stand-up. Contributors were from 8 to 80s. In a total 'feel good' evening, the personal stand-outs for me were the awesome voice of professional opera singer Jacqueline Varsey, the precocious instrumental talent of Shona and Adele Beecham and the fun and zestful contributions of the youngsters.
