The Friends of St Mary's Church in Haddenham hosted a memorable concert at the church last Saturday, 8th February, showcasing some of the village's very talented young musicians.
A capacity audience enjoyed music ranging from Purcell, Bach and Mozart to modern-day jazz, performed on a wide range of instruments, including saxophone, harp and voice. A small choir of children from St Mary's School also delighted and captivated listeners with two energetic songs, supported with actions.
Professional musician Daniel Mullin compered the afternoon with wit and sensitivity, offering helpful feedback to inspire and encourage the performers to even greater achievements.
Members of the audience lingered afterwards to congratulate the young people, and enjoy drinks and delicious cakes provided by the Friends of St Mary's Church.
Thanks are due to the Friends, accompanists and all those who worked tirelessly to make the afternoon a success. Haddenham is blessed to have such a wealth of musical ability in the village, encouraged and supported by some excellent tutors, and residents look forward to another feast of musicianship next year.
