Residents at Kingston Care Home in Surrey enjoyed a trip to St. Andrew's Church in Surbiton on 20th January for a concert by musicians from Tiffin School.
Despite the drizzle, our third visit to the church was an outstanding success and when the music started we forgot all about the cold damp January weather. The pupils performed solo violin, viola and cello pieces, then the whole group ended the recital with Eine Kleine Nachtmusik by Mozart. The interior of St. Andrew's Church is beautiful, especially the decorative brickwork and stained glass windows – a perfect backdrop to the soaring music.
Edna Cruickshank, Activities Coordinator said "We all thought the pupils were so talented and the music gave us goosebumps, a thoroughly enjoyable experience."
Edna received a lovely letter of thanks from Paul Williams, the husband of resident Jean Williams who wrote "Many thanks for organising such an enjoyable and successful trip to the St Andrew’s Concert yesterday – despite the weather everybody had a really good time. Finally, just to confirm my thanks for all effort and enthusiasm in your activities role at the Care Home which Jean and I and the other residents really appreciate."
