Music for a Summer's Evening

Posted: 5 September, 2017

The concert on Sunday, 27th August, which was in memory of Muriel Rhodes, long-standing and well-known member of Greyfriars, and also on behalf of Greyfriars, was a great success.

The church was packed (not something we see often!) with over 70 people from the community and further afield, including Cornwall. 

The Freden Ensemble performed a delightful concert of music including Mozart, Handel Schubert ... and Gershwin! The latter seemed an unusual inclusion but on the night, the young singer, Louise Adlam, hit the right notes to conjure up the era that Muriel grew up in. All in all, it was a concert she would have approved of and the audience certainly enjoyed.

The proceeds from the concert which will go to Greyfriars were a remarkable £1,345.
