Meanwhile, on the Concourse...

Of course all the action wasn't confined to the concert halls. Some of the best things occurred on the Concourse where one could eat, drink or just listen to some of our better local performers.
Pictured left are the combatants (!) in the vocal invention performance. This was bizarre to say the least but entertaining and good fun for the performers and audience alike.

I'd nipped over to the Hilton to catch the set by Zoe Gilby and Andy Champion but coincided with their interval which was a very nice interval - minor seventh -then returned to the Concourse where our other great diva Ruth Lambert along with Paul Gamblin (gtr) and Paul Susans (bs) were strutting their stuff.
Time After Time, Easy Street, Beautiful Love, My Heart Stood Still just some of the gems.

The Sage's own youth band Jambone rounded off the afternoon fronted by mentors Ryan Quigley and Paul Towndrow.
This was a tremendous set that set the pattern for the evening concert by the SNJO to follow. Needless to say the two mentors were in top form but so also was our boy Harley Johnson on piano and Loretta from Egglescliffe School on tenor plus some others whose names I missed.
Great band - awful shirts!
(With apologies to those bands/performers I've missed out.)
