The FoLS Community Concert was a showstopper success, which featured an impressive display of talent from the very young to the not so very old!

The Lewknor Primary School Choir sang (and danced) beautifully a number of songs including Purple People Eater, My Favourite Things , Close Every Door, Joseph’s Coat, and they brought the house down with their rendition of Any Dream Will Do at the end of the concert.

We also had performances from The Festival Choir, which is made up of singers from Lewknor and Tetsworth. They performed All in the April Evening (Robertson), Look at the World (Rutter), Lily of the Valley (Whalum), Bless this House (Brahe) and a solo performance of Ticket to Heaven sung by Christine Stevens. The choir was accompanied by Martin Paul on piano.

Guitarist Alan Ashby, dad of Elodie, Meira and Laurence, performed with two of his children. He gave a rendition of David Bowie’s Space Oddity with Laurence on drums, while Elodie accompanied her dad on drums when he sang The Jungle Book’s I Wanna Be Like You.

Concert organiser and mum of Rosie and Jess, Fiona Kendall and her friend Fiona Kermack had fun by dressing as cabin crew for their performance of Flower Duet from Lakme (British Airways advert theme song) by Delibres!

Children in Lower Juniors performed two catchy numbers, Eadie’s Blues and Jam Blues on cornet.

There was much hilarity when Flynn and his actress mum Liv performed an excerpt from Romeo and Juliet, with Flynn taking on the role of Juliet. Annie and mum Emma Hunt were just brilliant when they sang How d’ya like your Eggs in the Morning. We also had several solo performances. Katie, who has the most amazing voice, sang Apologise (One Republic), Elektra, who has only just started learning the piano/keyboard, performed the theme from Star Wars, and Mrs Hemmings recited two poems, The Jabberwocky and 56 Old Norse Words that Invaded the English Language.

We also had a delightful duet from Miss Lawes on guitar and her partner Mark on fiddle when they performed All on Account of You.

A HUGE THANK YOU to all our performers, St Margaret’s Church, the people of Lewknor and surrounding villages, the staff, children and parents, and of course to all who helped organise this wonderful event.

Thank you to FOLS for yet another fun fundraiser and I hope to see everyone back again for another concert next year!
