St John’s Church “Aspire” Concert recording
Saturday 23rd November 2019
In these strange and troubling times that we currently face, I have become aware of how much the St. John’s website is able to provide a valuable connection with the local community.
This recording is testament to the extraordinary level of ability and barefaced “home grown” talent that came together to raise much needed funds for the St. John’s Church Spire appeal and Macmillan Cancer Support. The large audience virtually filled the Church which had been transformed using architectural and stage lighting.
There were many who for one reason or another were unable to be a part of the audience that evening but you will now be able to savour the atmosphere and range of musical styles and genres that were performed live that night in the comfort of your own home. To all the performers who gave of their time with little or no rehearsal, some making their debut in front of an audience, reminisce and justifiably be proud of the result.
My thanks go to my great friend and audio guru Mark Rogers (ex Abbey Road Studio engineer) who took my fairly average 2 track recording of the evening and made it sound halfway decent!
Who knows…..we may do it all again one day!
Sit back…..crank up the volume a bit and enjoy!!
