Congratulations to the Eye Matter Singers for a brilliant first performance !
Talented vocalist Linn Davies from the Inner Vision Orchestra has been running a series of free online singing workshops with fabulous Eye Matter attendees. The singers performed live for the first time in front of an audience at St Andrews Waterloo on Saturday 29th October. We were so impressed with their confidence and talent. There were seven singers led by Linn accompanied by Fiona Dunn on the piano, as well as voluntary accompaniment from Baluji Shrivastav OBE on the sitar and Takashi Kikuchi on viola also from the Inner Vision Orchestra. The audience joined in with percussion. It was a really amazing performance full of catchy tunes from Abba's 'Mamma Mia' to wartime hit 'It's a long way to Tipperary' which attendees have not been able to stop singing since. The event was organised by the Baluji Music Foundation in collaboration with Suzie Symonds from Eye Matter and was funded by the Worshipful Company of Spectacle Makers. We were lucky enough to have the Master of the Spectacle Makers Mr Nigel Haig-Brown and his wife Sue in attendance! We are looking forward to more workshops and more performances!!
