Two years ago, the nationally renowned Masquerade String Quartet gave a fundraising concert in the village hall hosted by the PTA of Haddenham Community Infant School. On Friday 16th June they will be returning to give a concert entitled "Music From The Movies". Two of the Quartet members, Mark and Liz Chivers have children who attend HCIS and are keen to top the £2,000 that the last fundraiser achieved.
Masquerade are currently contracted to Russell Watson/Handshake Productions, and the Quartet have individually performed with international artists such as Il Divo, Andrea Bocelli and Katherine Jenkins alongside many soundtracks for Film and Television (including, X Factor for ITV and Doctor Who, Lady Chatterley's Lover and Father Brown Investigates for BBC1). They are also renowned for their Jazz and Film Music concerts and it is all things Movie Music (from Hitchcock's Vertigo to Star Wars The Force Awakens) that will be on show on the night itself.
The village hall will be decorated to look like a summer garden with plants and trees generously donated by Hartwell Nurseries and lots of twinkly lights! There will be a live auction on the night with prizes including two best seats in the house for Wicked in the West End, alongside fully signed cast programmes.
Doors open at 7.30pm for a bring your own picnic supper (there will be a bar on the night selling Prosecco, Wine and Beer). The concert itself, informally introduced by the Quartet, will begin at 8.30pm. Tickets are £10 each.
Look out for posters around the village. Tickets will be on sale at Blooming Fruity, Haddenham Library or from members of the PTA at HCIS. The concert sold out two years ago, so make sure you get your tickets early! Tables of 8-10 people can be booked through the PTA.
