Top of the bill was Linda Tolchard, classical crossover singer who sang many favourites and endeared people not only by her choice of music but also by her warm interaction with the audience.
The talented young musicians making up the Jazz Band of St Christopher’s C of E High School Accrington went down a storm playing jazz numbers both traditional and modern.
Also singing were two choirs, BAE Systems Workplace Choir and Blackburn People’s Choir both of which performed a mixture
of popular songs from different eras.
The concert ended with a real ‘Last Night of the Proms’ moment when the choirs united with Linda finishing with Jerusalem and Land of Hope and Glory and flag waving by audience and performers.
The evening was hosted by the fabulous John Gillmore and helped to raise a wonderful total of £2,813.20.
