Weyhill Electronic Organ Society decided to ‘push the boat out’ by engaging four artistes to perform for their recent concert at The Lights Theatre in Andover ... and their initiative was well rewarded with a truly excellent show, in front of an audience of around 220.
The show was brilliantly directed by Michael Wooldridge, more than ably assisted by Chris Stanbury and percussionist, Gareth Thompson. The foursome was completed by talented vocalist Sue Stockley, making her debut appearance for an electronic organ society.
The stage was far from easy to set up, with cameras directed on two keyboards as well as the Theatre’s grand piano, but the effort was certainly worthwhile. The loud and sustained applause at the end of the evening spoke volumes for how much this enterprise and the artistes’ brilliant performances were appreciated.
The event was attended by the Mayor of Test Valley, plus the Deputy Mayor and last year's Mayor. Claudia Hirschfeld will be the Society's next performer at the theatre - in April 2013. Meanwhile, regular monthly concerts will continue at the Club's usual venue in Weyhill.
