Kay Muir and Len Druce with a song about Three Hopeful Fishermen and the One That Got Away
At the first Music Plus night of the year it was encouraging to hear original lyrics, songs and poems, and we look forward to more in the future.
The newly built-in sound system proved to be all we could have hoped for and more. A delight in many ways, not least, saving Len and Pam from packing equipment into and out of the car four times on each of these Music Plus nights.
The highlights were the melding of the two voices of Kirsten and Sarah in Stretched on Your Grave, the addition of Debbie on flute with Ron’s very able guitar and Manfred’s singing.
Other highlights included Neil’s rendition of two of Leonard Cohen’s compositions, Jo’s lovely flute playing in Benjamin Britten’s The Salley Gardens and Sicilienne by Gabriel Faure, and Pam’s piano solo of one of Mendelssohn’s Songs Without Words.
Most of all, the constant surprise of young talent witnessed in our own local lad Braden Gray, who entertained us with two songs with guitar, showing he has great feeling for the music he plays and integrity in performance.
We look forward to another night of such excess on Thursday April 27 at 7pm in the Veterans’ and Community Hall, Cooloola Cove.
If you would like to participate please be early as we may have to disappoint late requests.
