Club Night 7th December 2010

What a wonderful Club Night. What a wonderful way to finish our Club Nights for 2010! A record Club Night audience were treated to some magnificent musicianship and lovely melodies. Our special guest artist for the arrival music was none other than Margaret Massey, who has to one of the finest pianists on the North Shore. Margaret played our Technics GA3 organ and then moved on to our Clavinova. Inspirational Margaret thank you so much! Some of our most talented members then gave us a veritable feast of music starting with Roy Steen on the GA3, followed by Carole Littlejohn, who came up all the way from Papamoa to play for us. To finish the first half, Taka Iida played his magnificent Yamaha Electone D-Deck keyboard - gorgeous sounds, great arrangements and masterfully executed. After traditional mince pies and a cuppa (the bar was open for those that wanted a sip of wine), Denise Gunson treated us to some wonderful music on the Clavinova - what a lovely style and touch. After the special raffle draw, there were 11 buckets of goodies, we were treated to a grand finale with John Bercich, our Club resident professional, who was joined by one of his star pupils and a member of our Club, Jan Johnston. They played their Korg Pa1X keyboards and thoroughly delighted the audience with their great music.

As always, a big thank you to the Committee for organizing the evening so successfully.
