Listen to an electronic realisation of the Clarinet Polka played in this concert:
This concert included the first performance of
Canadian composer Adrian Rumson's second violin concerto,
written for Elizabeth Ann Binks and us to perform. Here is an
electronic realisation of the new work,
Violin Concerto No 2 in G minor / D major :
This concert raised £187 in cash donations for the Sanktus Welfare Project.
The sum should be considerably higher once any online donations have
been counted. We would like to thank Nick for his brilliant clarinet and sax
playing, the extra musicians who joined us for the concert, and Rose and
Richard from Sanktus for extra refreshments and for getting the crowds in.
Mike Walker (1935-2022) was our much-missed, long-term saxophone player,
who died in September, aged 87. Listen to a computer realisation of the
carol medley we played as an encore at the end of this concert,
arranged specially by Keith Bramich, in memory of Mike.
Our performance of the medley ended with Nick Charles playing
a well-known carol on saxophone.
£105.60 raised for the SanKTus Homeless Project.
This concert raised £1,000 in donations, split between CAFOD (the Catholic
Agency for Overseas Development)'s Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal and
UNHCR (the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees). We are very
grateful to everyone who donated so generously, and particularly to
Christopher Evans for his financial contributions to this concert.
Our encore was a Ukrainian polka, newly orchestrated for this concert.
