DOWN MEMORY LANE WITH A SWING!


A wide range of music was the keynote of the annual Rotary Senior Citizens' Concert held at Queensferry High School on Friday 11th March. Host Dr Douglas Stuart introduced a line up of talent of all ages from Queensferry and further afield. First up were eight soloists from Queensferry High School including Iona Thomson on piano, singer Andrew Melville, Samantha Tulloch on euphonium and violinist Andrew Stroud. Music ranged from traditions songs through classical pieces to a Hungarian csardas, proving not only the talent of the students but the effectiveness of teachers Cat and Ally who introduced and accompanied the performers.

The mood changed to folk music when Home Groan - a group of ladies from the choir Ferry Blend - took the stage. Accompanied by guitar, drum and bioran, their repertoire brought back many memories and had the capacity audience singing along.

The meal and a raffle was followed by Fife group Limelight Musical Theatre, whose polished performance of songs from stage and screen included numbers from Calamity Jane, Sweet Charity and Thoroughly Modern Millie. The evening culminated when Queensferry Brass Band took the stage under musical director Jim Anderson. A wonderful selection of lively and more slow-tempo pieces by the award-winning local musicians brought the concert to a close. In his closing remarks, President Elect Graham Leith said that once more the talent of  Queensferry High School sudents and local people, all willing to perform so splendidly had given us another memorable evening. He thanked the performers, the staff of Queensferry High School, Rotarian Robert Farrelly and Toni Roseweir for organising and staging the event, club members and partners for preparing the food and lastly the audience for their active participation and support.smile emoticon
