CONCERT: Supporting local talent

We would like to record a big ‘thank you’ to everyone who attended the recent ‘Evening of Song’ concert at St George’s United Reformed Church, which raised funds to support Richard Pinkstone during his coming two years at the Royal College of Music (RCM).

This promising young musician has been offered a place commencing mid-September on the RCM’s Masters Course in Vocal Music.

Supported by Eleanor Dann (soprano), the concert raised an amazing total of £1,200.

Both singers gave the very large audience outstanding performances, including a variety of songs, operatic arias and excerpts from musicals.

Richard was delighted by the warmth and generosity of the audience and looks forward to his time at the Royal College.

Once again many thanks.

Brian and Janice Pinkstone (Richard’s parents)
