With StonyLive! events in SMSG getting off to a flying start with our very successful Gardeners’ Delight Coffee Morning on Saturday, we were delighted to have this popular local choir perform on Sunday evening, 2 June.
The Music Makers of Milton Keynes bring enthusiasm, energy, stunning arrangements and a beautiful sound. They opened with songs from the shows and quickly changed mood to give us a medley of Howard Goodall TV theme tunes. Their Musical Director, Brian Dipple, played two piano solos on the grand piano, explaining the significance of his choices. We moved to a tea break by way of two German folk songs, which were probably unfamiliar to the majori
ty of the audience.
The whole programme was varied and stimulating, with amusing introductions to the pieces. With, two more piano solos, Abba classics and a very moving arrangement of Bridge Over Troubled Water to finish, we had a real musical feast.
Thank you to the whole group and we look forward to your return on 14th December!
