An enormous thank you to all at Darent Valley Youth Music for the outstanding effort that went into making a very cold Murumbinda Musicathon such a huge success. Our considerable thanks to:
- all who struggled through the snow and rain to play so cheerfully throughout the night (although the audiences were minimal the solos and duets were so very special);
- all who played in the freezing conditions under the lychgate;
- our more senior players and guest players who kept the music going for an hour from 9am, many of whom also performed for an hour at 5.30pm and then played in the Messiah later that evening.
- the youngsters who performed solos in church in the afternoon during the non-programmed breaks.
The combined efforts of these willing and capable DVYM volunteers who gladly entertained the good folk of Eynsford for fully 24 hours, helped raise over £4000 for Murambinda Hospital. Not only did the event raise much-needed revenue for a worthy charity but it was much enjoyed by so many, many people. Congratulations and “Thank You”.
