Jacaranda Concert Success
Our 2022 Jacaranda Concert last Sunday afternoon was a big hit and has enjoyed rave reviews all week!
Prior to Covid times, this concert had been an annual musical event where various artists have performed classical music. In reviving it this year, we focussed more on a family-friendly musical concert, showcasing many of our hall hirers and GPUC friends as part of our cast of entertainers.
We give our sincere thanks to all our wonderful performers: The Cathedral Singers (including our own David Lewis), Ukrainian pianist Anastasia, SCUC vocalist Young Ju, dance students from Northern Ballet Studios, organist Philip Reichardt, and students from The Academy of Flute for their musical contributions.
A very warm thank you to members of our congregation for their assistance in the production of the concert—especially to Rosemary Watson for preparing and co-ordinating a delicious afternoon tea; to Chris Hudson for presentations to the Photography Competition winners and his tribute to
the Queen; and last, but by no means least, to our ebullient emcee, Steve Aynsley. Congratulations to Keith Wilson on winning the Jacaranda photographic competition and to Sue Conde on a special commendation for her unique entry.
