Winter Words and Music – Booer Family Concert 28 November 2015 reported by John Cairns

Five in a Bar girls quintet

On Saturday 28th November a full house at Eynsford village hall was entertained by Eynsford’s own Von Trapp family – the Booer family.

From Tim and Eileen at front of house, through Paul and Helena singing to Sandra both singing and conducting, three generations of the family were involved.

Supported by the “Vocalise” choir, “Five in a Bar” girls quintet, soloist Andrew Sparling and pianist Laetitia Federici, we were treated to an evening of seasonal songs and poems. The audience listened to a range of songs, traditional and modern, ranging from Handel’s halleluiah chorus through to ‘the song that goes like this’ from Spamalot interspersed with seasonal poems.

The finale was a rather more sophisticated than usual carol concert with the audience singing the carols and the choir singing the descant.

This very successful evening raised over £1000 for the Village Hall’s funds.
