Musical Miscellany – a lovely evening for Oxfordshire Association for the Blind

Building on the success of Musical Memories in Warborough which raised money for Alzheimers Research, we held another concert on 8th June at St Michael and All Angels church to raise funds for our President’s Charity, Oxfordshire Association for the Blind.

Many friends and Club members gave freely of their time, talents and energy to produce another successful concert. The performers ranged in age from 3 years to 80 years! They included St Michael’s Choristers directed by Alice Stainer, Oxford Harmony (male barbershop), Rtn.
