Talented line-up for Hymn Sing
|April 29, 2012|
After the resounding success of last year’s first Favorite Hymn Sing event, Margaret Hancox is organising a second musical afternoon in Mt Barker later this month.
This year’s event will be held at the Uniting Church on Mann Street on Sunday, April 29, at 2pm.
The program will be hosted by Trevor Hancox and will feature the band Brass Souls, a versatile brass quintet whose members have their origins in Mt Barker.
The quintet play music from many genres and perform in functions around SA.
Another special guest will be soloist Sheerah Sevilla – a vibrant young vocalist who “sings like an angel”.
Ms Sevilla was born in the Philippines and lives in Mt Barker while studying at Adelaide University.
She will be joined by guest pianist and composer, Dianne Willis, who will be presenting one of her latest compositions.
Brian Pearce of Flaxley will play the old pipe organ in the church, combining his music with piano and brass.
Admission to the Favorite Hymn Sing is free but an offering for local charities will be taken up at the end of the evening.
“The inaugural Favorite Hymn Sing was held last November and people from all over the State claimed it an overwhelming success,” Mrs Hancox said.
“The great hymns are a wonderful time of community singing and entertainment and all are very welcome to participate.”
Afternoon tea follows the program. For more details contact Mrs Hancox on 0427 734 071.
