A group of enthusiastic young musicians assisted by professional colleagues under the leadership of Margaret Archibald gave a most entertaining concert on the afternoon Sunday, 5 November.

The music played included extracts from Handel’s Music for the Royal Fireworks (it was Fireworks Night after all), Spirituals (with audience participation), an item by Gabrieli¬† for St. Mark’s basilica in Venice, and extracts from Harry Potter, Phantom of the Opera and the Night before Christmas.

‘Everyone Matters’ is a registered charity bringing music to the young, old and disadvantaged, and there was a voluntary collection to support the group’s work.
