Picnic in the Park
Mount St Mary’s Jazz Band performed alongside professional musicians in aid of local charity ‘Lost Chord’ at Hodsock Priory recently. ‘Picnic in the Park’ was attended by over 600 people and raised over £6000 for the dementia charity, including £500 donated from musical fundraising events at Mount St Mary’s.
The Jazz Band is well used to playing in front of the public – their recent gigs have included the annual Snooker Ball in Sheffield. The audience at ‘Picnic in the Park’ were obviously delighted by the musicianship of our young musicians, who have been invited back for a repeat event next year.
