‘Music for a Summer Evening’ – report

The Elite Quartet
The Beaufort Ensemble
Octavia (Quire)
Elaine Barker

Wednesday 17th July

A delightful concert with light music for Strings by Karl Jenkins, Percy Grainger and Piazzola; wind music by Gerschwin, Irving Berlin and Freddie Mercury; and Octavia’s usual blend of songs from Africa, Europe, and a couple of Tamblyn originals.

Elaine Barker presented delightful anecdotes from her work on the Peldon History Project.

It was particularly nice to see a full church, and of course many thanks to Alma and Jan (and no doubt a few other cooks) for the refreshments at the interval.

The mix of entertainment obviously worked. Perhaps we should do it again sometime.
Bill Tamblyn
