SOIRÉE MUSICALE WITH PATRICIA HAMMOND
On Thursday November 17 2011 the trustees and committee members organised a delightful soiree at the elegant home of the Scotts in Holland Park. Concertina's newest Patron, Patricia Hammond, and her excellent accompanis Andrea Kmecova, performed a selection of popular songs which were enthusiastically received by Concertina's stalwart supporters. The intimate setting provided an ideal backdrop to Patricia's special brand of concerts tailored to the mood and taste of her audience. Her experience singing in residential care homes all over England shone through as she judged her audience to perfection. A delicious curry supper was provided by the trustees and committee members and an auction and raffle raised much needed funds for music for the elderly. £4,700 was raised and a wonderful evening was had by all!
