On Sunday 7th October 2018 soundLINCS New Tricks groups, Music Facilitators, friends and family gathered for a day of music performances to celebrate Silver Sunday.
The national day involves a variety of events taking place across the country such as golf, lunch, dance workshops or music to celebrate older people and their contribution to society.
soundLINCS’ Silver Sunday event took place at Louth Riverhead Theatre with five New Tricks music groups performing a variety of music.
The afternoon included performances from New Tricks Combined Choirs from Woodhall Spa and Louth, Mablethorpe Instrumental Group, ‘One Good Eye’ Instrumental Group and Grimsby Ukulule Group.
New Tricks Combined Choirs started the afternoon with a performance of songs which energised the room with the audience singing along.
Mablethorpe Instrumental Group followed with an excellent performance playing a variety of instruments. Some classic favourites were played and it was great to see what they had enjoyed learning during their New Tricks sessions.
‘One Good Eye’ Instrumental Group combined both singing and playing with the audience singing along to songs Purple Rain and Forever Young.
To finish the afternoon Grimsby Ukulele group entertained the audience with a variety of songs including Valerie with more singing along.
It was a fantastic afternoon with friends and family and an excellent opportunity for new performers to share their skills. Thankyou to all our New Tricks performers for a wonderful afternoon of sharing music and song.
