The Pinkies Small Group raise the rafters at Wood Green library!
Wednesday 29th November saw the Pink Singers Small Group Perform at Wood Green Library for Positive Rainbow’s annual World Aids Day event.
Led by Michael Derrick, the group began with an upbeat version of Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy followed by the smooth jazz standard Ain’t Misbehavin’. Phillip Rescorla MC’d the event in his own inimitable style making the audience giggle and groan with his witty one liners. With only eleven voices our version of Brahm’s Waltzes was performed as the composer had intended, for an ensemble group. Johnathon, usually a tenor, worked really hard to relearn all the numbers as a bass and sang a beautiful solo in Love Song for a Vampire, which went down very well with the audience. Sheer Madness had heads nodding and feet tapping along with the creative medley arranged by Andy from the bass section. A beautiful, intimate version of Robbie William’s Angels finished the show and left the audience calling for more.
Whilst chatting to the audience after the show I was very pleased to hear lots of positive comments and promises of ticket sales for our next concert! The organisers were delighted and we hope to be back again next year.
I would like to thank Michael and all the Small Group performers for giving up their valuable time to make events like this possible. Small Group performances help us become more and more visible. Well done all!
