Enjoying Bizet to Broadway
All Saints Church in Old Buckenham was packed this evening, all the pews were full and people were having to get close to other people that they might not even have known! The reason was the concert given by Upper Octave (www.theupperoctave.com) where they entertained for a couple of hours with songs from operas and songs from the musicals.
One main purpose of the evening was to raise funds for the church but this was such a pleasant way to do it. The singing was wonderful and whole event was subtly lit throughout which added to the atmosphere.
At the half time break there was a glass of wine for all who wanted it and a wonderful spread of homemade nibbles to enjoy while chatting to all those around you. This food was much appreciated with the tables virtually cleared by the time the second half started.
The lighting during the performance was not really conducive to taking photographs but the group kindly posed afterwards in all their finery as they relaxed and enjoyed some refreshments of their own.
