SCAYNES HILL CONCERT: ‘MUSIC FOR A SUMMER’S EVENING’
On a delightful summer evening at the start of July, St Augustine’s Church in Scaynes Hill was filled with the sounds of flutes, clarinets, recorders and a vocal solo as young local musicians had the opportunity to entertain their families and friends with a wide-ranging repertoire of classical and contemporary pieces.
The concert, organised by two local music teachers, Sam Davies and Caroline Furnell, was a sell-out, with the proceeds being divided equally between St Augustine’s Church and Group B Strep Support, a locally-based charity.
During the interval, the audience were able to enjoy refreshments and a terrific selection of cakes and scones donated by parents and members of the church.
The concert was rounded off by a performance of Bossamanda, a bossa nova style piece, by ‘The Fluteenies’ – a quartet of teenage flautists directed by Sam Davies – who in recent years have built a reputation for excellent and entertaining performances at local music festivals and concerts.
Everyone enjoyed themselves; all the musicians giving spirited performances and displaying enthusiasm and dedication. All-in-all it was a night to remember.
