Jazz Concert by Djangology – Loughborough November 2008
Our major fundraising event for 2008 was a Top Of The World Jazz Concert.
In November 2008, Djangology captured the attention and enthusiasm of a large audience at Trinity Methodist Church, Loughborough with a stunning programme of jazz inspired by the Quintette of the Hot Club of Paris. Richard Smith also gave us some inspired classical solos. It was a wet, stormy night outside but every member of the audience must have been glad they make the effort to turn out – none of us wanted the music to stop. It was a truly memorable evening. We launched our new calendar for 2009, introduced our range of greetings cards and raised £1600 for the work in Aruchour.
We are grateful to Trinity Church for providing the venue, for the Church members who came along to provide technical support and serve refreshments – and, of course, a huge thanks to Djangology.
