War Songs Concert

We had a great time last night at the War Songs Concert, staged by the North Canterbury Musical Society but also featuring the Rangiora Brass Band, Toot ‘n’ Croon and the Rangiora Players. 

I guess you had to be a certain age (and, no, I wasn’t around for World War II) to appreciate the music, but a near sell-out crowd obviously had a lot of fun.  When you are dealing with war there were, of course, poignant moments but overall it was a trip back to a time when a lot of the music was designed to lift spirits through dark times.  With the full range of music-hall numbers, swing, marches and patriotic songs, our spirits were certainly lifted!

    Thank you very much for your very kind report of our ”65 Years On” show. We had great fun during the rehersals preparing for the show. Meeting & making new friends along the way. I meet a lady who had been to the mattinee & enjoyed it so much she went back in the evening for that show as well. That is so good for the cast to hear.
    Good luck for the elections.
