OUR JULY CONCERT - CHIHO SUNAMOTO & JON SMITH

 

 

Chiho Sunamoto & Jon Smith at Woodhall Spa

A large audience turned out on a very hot summer evening to hear Chiho Sunamoto and Jon Smith give our July concert.  They were not disappointed and were treated to a superb evening of music.  The content was very varied ranging from "The Throne Room" from Star Wars to "Rhapsody inh Blue" and "The Water Melon Man". There was a beautiful rendering of "It Happened in Monterey" sung by Jon and accompanied by Chiho and the first half came to a rousing conclusion with "The Battle Hymn of the Republic".

 

In the second half they played "Moonlight Serenade" and Chiho gave us a fantastic performance of "Finlandia" by Sibeleus. Jon followed with a couple of tunes on his Melodica, including a performance of "Misty".  After some energetic Sambas and a medley from "Phantom of the Opera", they concluded the concert with a rousing performance of "Land of Hope and Glory", with plenty of audience participation!  It was a wonderful evening and one which will be talked about for many months to come.

 

Next month we welcome back Chris Powell, whose concert takes place on Tuesday evening 21st August at St Peter's Hall, The Broadway, Woodhall Spa, LN10 6ST, starting at 7.30 pm. Admission for visitors is £7.00.  Further information is available from the Chairman Philip Groves on 01526 353225.
