It is amazing how connections within a parish can bring about musical offerings for the enjoyment of many. When we started fundraising for the organ 3 1/2 years ago it seemed like a mammoth task, as our little group, although full of enthusiasm and various useful skills, had to learn how to work together and had to start encouraging others to believe in our project. We have learned a lot since then, and although we still have a long way to go with fundraising for the organ refurbishment we have started to build a reputation for providing quality musical entertainment in Stony Stratford, as well as other fundraising events which involve the wider community.
We knew there must be untapped opportunities within and beyond our parish family, and we are starting to tap into more of them. One of our parish family approached us last year with the offer of a concert from Voice Versa, as her daughter is a member of the singing group. We were delighted to accept, so are pleased to announce that Clive, Valerie, Ann, Kevin and Simon will be singing in St Mary & St Giles Church on Saturday 27th March at 7.30 pm.
Their invitation to you is:
A POSTCARD FROM VOICE VERSA
Dear Music Lover,
You are invited to an evening of entertainment in music and words
from Voice Versa
WISH YOU WERE HERE
Greetings from special places
This versatile vocal ensemble with pianist perform an entertaining mix of music from different eras in a programme which includes music by Mozart, Gershwin, Flanders & Swann, Edvard Grieg, Orlando Gibbons, Rodgers & Hart, Cole Porter, and John Rutter.
With piano interludes and readings, the evening amounts to an unusual and interesting journey into familiar and unfamiliar places – a real entertainment in words and music with a light touch.
This concert will be free entry with a retiring collection for the pipe organ fund. We will be serving delicious refreshments as usual, and everyone is very welcome.
