Future programme

Wednesday 4th March

4th March with ten members present, was yet another morning of good music started off by Ann with two James Bond themes; Nancy Sinatra and "You Only Live Twice" and "We Have All The Time In The World" by Louis Armstrong.

Dorothy was next and she played two very different pieces. Bobby Darren's "A Walk In The Park" followed by Mozart's "A Musical Joke"

Sally continued the classical theme with Rachmaninov's "Prelude in G Minor" played by Kathrine Lamb, a pianist from Leicester, then "If I Ruled The World" by Harry Secombe proving that the Welsh can sing!

Barbara then gave us a second Welsh connection of the day with Aled Jones and Handel's "Did You Not Hear My Lady" and then Cliff Richard and two for the price of one recording of "Over The Rainbow / What A Wonderful World".

Barry gave us Procol Harum with "A Whiter Shade Of Pale" and the theme from Ghost - "Unchained Melody" by The Rightous Brothers.

Brenda brought the wonderful Carol Kidd singing "Dat Dere" and the original stage cast of Calamity Jane just "Just Blown In From The Windy City"

David's first piece was Dave Brubeck playing Bernstein's "I Feel Pretty" and a third Welsh connection "Myfanwy" (beloved) with Bryn Terfel.

Nev had Dave Edmunds "I Hear You Knocking" and great to hear again Lonnie Donigan with "Muleskinner Blues"

Lesley had two songs with the same title "I'll Never Find Another You ", one by The New Seekers and the other was by Billy Fury.

Neil tried to convince us that he was a going to be able to turn the rain off with music by playing "Crying In The Rain" by The Everly Brothers, "Rider In The Rain" by Randy Newman and The Temptations' "I Wish It Would Rain" - and it did.

Thank you Neil for hosting.
