Thanks to all who came along to my two Mozart recitals last week! Over £340 was raised for the charities of the United Church, Winchester, and St Mark’s Church, Southampton, which in 2013 were Joliba Trust, Phakamisa, Philippine Community Fund, The Children’s Society, Church Army Projects and Toybox Christmas Appeal.
I was delighted that The Right Worshipful Mayor and Mayoress of Winchester, Councillor Ernie Jeffs and Mrs Barbara Jeffs, were present at the recital in the United Church – and it was an honour to be selected as one of the Mayor’s events for 2013. It was also wonderful to see so many friends and family in the audience on both nights – and to meet some new faces, too!
I would like to reiterate my heartfelt thanks to all those who helped to advertise the recitals and who made the evenings such a success; my fantastic accompanist Gilly Slot; Naomi in the United Church office; Janey Miller and Richard Seed and family at St Mark’s Church; St Winifred’s School; King Edward VI School; John Barnes at NODA; Annya Sait at the Southern Daily Echo; the Hampshire Chronicle (to see their press release, follow: http://www.hampshirechronicle.co.uk/news/10901016.United_Church_to_host_evening_of_Mozart_s_music/?ref=var_0); the Romsey Advertiser; BBC Radio Solent; Steve at Minuteman Press; and all my brilliant friends, family and teachers.
Videos are now available of the performances: visit my Recordings page.
Happy New Year to you all – and may 2014 bring you much happiness, health and wealth!
