Classical music and traditional afternoon out

Have your say

A LATE burst of summer sun attracted more than 600 guests to historic Hodsock Priory for an afternoon of Picnic and Pavarotti.

The open air afternoon of classical and popular favourites raised money for Lost Chord, the charity that provides musical experiences for people in care homes.

Topping the bill were celebrated Sheffield-based Pavarotti impersonator Carl Taylor and acclaimed South Yorkshire soprano Deborah Norman. Also featured were Junction 33 Dance Band, the jazz ensemble from Mount St Mary’s School and South Yorkshire’s BeVox choir.

“This was a fantastic event and a great start to what we now intend to make an annual event,” said Lost Chord Fundraising Manager Tina Harrison.
