FESTIVAL SUCCESS

DSC02312Last Weekend Sell-Out!

The Spring Music Festival ended on a high note when the whole audience joined in with “Climb Every Mountain…” as a finale for The Magic of The Musicals dinner in the village hall. This brought to a close the Fifth Rottingdean Music Festival where audiences had enjoyed concerts by a wide variety of artists: Jonathan Wiseman on Classical Guitar, Latin American music with Rafael Berio, the Choral workshop with Bach’s St Matthew Passion and the Spring Prom Concert. Rottingdean Arts remain very grateful for all our Sponsors, and the many Patrons and Friends without whose support such a Festival would not be possible.

Herbie Flowers and his distinguished Band were back in Rottingdean to wow their audience with his unique mix of wry humour and superb music. He was joined on keyboard by Mike Hatchard who entertained us with ex tempore lyrics to some of the familiar favourites, and Paul Hart with his brilliant jazz violin solos, while Marie-Anne Hillier on percussion helped to keep the band in order. As well as his iconic “Walk on the Wild Side”, Herbie played a wide range of virtuoso pieces, and would have gone on all night if he had been allowed to!
