Last week I attended a very uplifting charity fundraising evening for Crazy Hats.
The Seagrave Singers, whose musical director has been a friend and colleague of mine for many years, put on a concert for us.
We are their nominated charity for the year.
This summer concert surpassed all expectations and we were treated to a wonderful repertoire, their best being songs from The Shows, especially those from Les Miserables.
In between concerts the ladies from the choir had kindly, and bravely, performed at our very wet walk in May, performing our song, You’ll Never Walk Alone.
The choir has won accolades at the Kettering and Oundle Eisteddfods.
I mention this because there is so much unrecognised talent out there and so much support.
Not only were we entertained, we were introduced to Maddie, 14, whose voice was so strong and powerful, yet sweet and gentle.
The potential for the choir and Maddie is endless; well done and thank you to you all. The evening ended with a favourite song of theirs; As Long As I Have Music.
It gives the message that however down we all may feel at times, there is always a favourite piece of music that will lift our spirits; I have many.
Together with the Corby Male Voice Choir, the Seagrave Singers will perform for us again at Southfield School, Kettering, on November 15.
If you need your spirits lifted please put this date in your diary and book your tickets.
