A privilege

CONGRATULATIONS to the Hastings Philharmonic Choir (HPC) on last Saturday evening’s wonderful St Mary’s concert.

It was a privilege to be there to listen and be awed by the choir and Francis Rayner’s accompanying piano playing, his Rhapsody in Blue was superb.

Susannah Appleyard’s singing was a delight as always and Hristo Dushev very capable on percussion.

Clearly in Marcio da Silva the choir has found a man blessed with many talents, conducting, singing and instrumentalist plus lots of charm and the ability to communicate with an audience.

My wife and I look forward to many more HPC concerts.
