Future programme

Wednesday 6th November

This month six members met for Music Appreciation

Brenda began and as it was close to Remembrance Day she gave us Nimrod from the Enigma Variations by Elgar. Then we had a Cole Porter song - 'Just one of those things' sung by Frank Sinatra.

Lesley continued the war time theme playing Anne Shelton's 'I'll be seeing you' followed by the rousing war time Rex Massed Brass Band and Chorus with 'Roll Out The Barrel' and Lale Anderson singing in German 'Lili Marlene'

Sally made a charge with Chopin and his Polonaise no.6 in A and Etude no.1 in C.
The amazing 'Super Trouper' from Abba followed this.

Dorothy introduced us to the organist Francis Jackson playing 'Tuba Tune' and then Beverley Craven singing an emotive 'Hope' and Abba's 'The Winner Takes It All'
She then introduced us to her son-in-law Stevie Williams and The Most Wanted Band with his own composition 'Trinidad Trilby'.

Nev started with the anti-war recording by Peter Paul and Mary 'Where Have All The Flowers Gone'
On a lighter note we then had 'Don't Sit On My Jimmy Shands' sung by Richard Thompson and then the fabulous Fats Waller with 'Two Sleepy People'

Neil who also had some Fats Waller played 'Ain't Misbehaving' and ending with Joe Brown and his daughter Sam singing 'Lazybones'

Next meeting will be pre Christmas on the 4th December at Lesley's 75 Leicester Road Measham
