Standing ovation for concert pianist

MOST people know what to expect from an Edward Jacobs’ concert and 93 members of a record audience at St Andrew’s Church on July 31 were not disappointed.

Edward played a variety of piano pieces from classical composers to modern day musicals, much to the delight of the audience. At the end of the concert he received a standing ovation.

When Liz Sansom first conceived of the idea of the Charmouth Lunchtime Concerts and mentioned it to Edward, without a moment’s hesitation he said, “I’ll do one for you” and this was what we all experienced on the day. Such is Edward’s generosity that he contributed his time free of charge to support the Changing Spaces activities which raise funds towards the renovation of St Andrew’s.

Thanks are due to Mary and Malcolm McNair for providing the refreshments before the concert started.

The next Lunchtime Concert will be held on August 21 at 12.30pm when Kat and Phil will entertain with ‘Jazz and Songs from the Musicals’. As usual the concert will be preceded by refreshments provided at 12noon. Please note that the content and the date for this concert has changed from that originally publicised.
