“Around The World” Show!
Last Sunday 20 of my students and I got together to perform a concert we had created with the theme of “Around The World”. We were raising money for Darwen Asylum and Refugee Enterprise (DARE). The songs we had chosen were all songs about places (“Good Morning Baltimore”, “Havana”, “Barcelona” and the like).
We had some special guests on guitar and percussion, and we even had a flautist join us on the day to play the solo in “California Dreamin'”. We met her only an hour or so before the show began, but the song sounded amazing despite the lack of rehearsal time!
Plenty of my super-talented students (and/or their parents!) baked delicious cakes and biscuits for everyone to share at the interval, and a couple of the refugee ladies helped to cook an ENORMOUS pot of yummy curry!
The afternoon was a lot of fun and we raised £200 for this excellent cause. Thank you to all the students who took part, plus all the parents, family, friends, supporters and guests who helped in any way.
