Programme for September to December 2017

20 September - David Roy-Martin, bass-baritone

David is an accomplished concert and cabaret performer with a wide repertoire of popular melodies and songs from musicals. He has developed a significant fan-club at Allegro Appassionato and he will be accompanied by Robert Thompson.

27 September  Four hands, one piano

Richard Lance Keeble and Robert Thompson combine their talents to exploit the potential of our Yamaha piano with an eclectic mix of piano duets.

4 October - Woldsong, church band

Woldsong was formed through a wish to sing and perform some of the latest worship songs which reflect the hope and love for a great spiritual power. The group can play both acoustically and with a full electric set and play once a month at St James's church at Cafe Church.

11 October All Star Jazz Band

The exact line-up of the All Star Jazz Band is always in doubt until the last minute, but our own Peter Tabois will be tinkling the ivories for sure at a session which will make feet tap and hearts sing.

18 October Stitherum Folk duo

Mike and Sue Dewsbury's repertoire is drawn from the full range of traditional and contemporary folk.  A typical set will include something silly, something sublime, something soppy and probably something slightly saucy, all interspersed with a fair bit of domestic 'harmony'! 'Stitherum' is a Lincolnshire dialect word meaning a convoluted tale or rigmarole and some would say 'it does what it says on the tin'.

25 October Pia Bromley, violin

Maurice Davies will accompany another remarkable young musical talent from Scunthorpe. Pia began studying the violin at a young age and soon realised that she wanted to pursue it as a career.

1 November - Fourum

The quartet was formed in 1998. The close harmony group has completed seven tours to the USA. In 2007 they sang in Jamestown, Virginia, as part of the USA's 400th birthday celebrations in front of President Bush.

8 November  Duo Piccolo e Grande

Duo Piccolo e Grande was created to explore non-mainstream music from the baroque period. Their featured instrument is the mandolino, a precise replica of the ivory and ebony 1752 original in the V&A museum. An antique hurdy-gurdy adds to an already interesting programme and all the music is accompanied by the theorbo. Composers include Scarlatti, Vivaldi and Webber, and the songs demonstrate the consistency of human preoccupations over the centuries.

15 November  St Michel's School

Gill Flowers and colleagues will bring up to 30 pupils to perform for us. The picture shows a music lesson where pupils are playing xylophones purchased with a donation from Allegro Appassionato.

22 November  Skegness Accordion Group

The group plays a wide range of music: marches, dances, light classical, country & western and musicals, to provide entertainment for everyone.

29 November  Whisky Before Breakfast

The folk band draws together Alford's string maestro Nick O'Farrell, recorder and flute diva Fiona Radford, bouzouki and mandolinist Stuart Hunter, drummer Andy Nisbet and curious Morris busker Patrick Purves.

6 December  A Seasonal Variety Show

Lacey Gardens school choir, Peter Tabois  jazz pianist, Barbara Pickerill and Mike Moran , show songs. These local artists well known to regular attenders at our concerts will provide a polished warm-up to mid-winter celebrations.
