Music and Poetry Evening 17th October 2012

The Bravo Four together with Lorna Pearson & Deputy Mayoress Chris Suller

 

A superb evening of entertainment was held in The New Hall at Tredegar House.

Over 60 members & guests attended and what a great evening it was.

The Friends raised £474 after all expenses.

The Bravo Four Barbershop Quartet opened the evening.  Their harmony and range was amazing.

We were treated to a number of popular songs and ballads, and some very amusing anecdotes.

The quartet was formed up in 1991 & has sung in Ireland, Germany, all over South Wales & England

and have even performed to the Monks at Belmont Abbey.

All their engagements are fund raising &, to date, have raised a staggering £30,000 towards their chosen charities.

At the interval the Friends provided light refreshments.

For second part of the evening we were entertained by Lorna Pearson.

Lorna is a humorous poet & storyteller.

The room was so full of laughter, but also there were poems which evoked wonderful childhood memories in us all.

Lorna inherited her love of rhyme and words from her mother Edith,

who from the time Lorna was very young, recited to her as she went about her chores.

Annie Parker.
