In the afternoon of New Year’s Day the Church of All Saints’ in Taoro Park was filled, to the COVID permitted capacity, when a Brass Quartet gave a concert.
This Quartet, comprising of 3 Trombones with a Tuba, from Reyes Bartlet, gave a varied recital with the first section comprising of some light classical numbers, including Sibelius’ tone poem “Finlandia” and a magnificent Trombone Quartet by Apon. This was followed by a medley of Christmas themed music including Adeste Fideles, Jingle bells etc. with the audience encouraged to join in with singing and clapping to some of the traditional numbers, The recital was brought to a close with a tear jerking rendition of Pucini’s Nessen Dorma.
A great afternoon’s entertainment and a wonderful start to the New Year. The Quartet have been invited to make a return visit to the Church and I do hope that they accept the invitation and would encourage others to come and enjoy such a return visit.
