Midsummer Music: Over the Moon & Planet Percussion


in aid of the Cherubim Music Trust.
A successful weekend of music and picnics in the delightful courtyard setting of Compton Marbling at Fonthill Gifford courtesy of Humphrey and Solveig Stone. Perfect weather saw a double dose of music featuring three Cherubim Musicians showing off their Cherubim Instruments. Saturday Adam Collins (Cherubim Tuba) brought along his Menine Quartet and a guest trombonist for an evening of Moon themed music including a new composition by the Trust's Director Michael Maxwell Steer and arrangements by Felix Rigg. Fly Me To the Moon proved very popular with the audience. On Sunday our guests included a much younger audience and they were happily entertained by Toril Azzalini-Machecler returning to once again show off his accomplished expertise on the Marimba and as a percussionist. Toril was a finalist of the BBC's Young Musician of the Year and he was joined by fellow percussionist Sehyogue Aulakh, equally accomplished and showing us the delightful sounds of the Cherubim Vibraphone. Young and old queued to get a chance to see the instruments up close and everyone enjoyed a thoughtful selection of pieces taking us from the sixties to contemporary composers. Even Swallows swooped in time to the beats as these two young musicians worked their midsummer agic. Monies raised will be contributing to Cherubims next musical instrument purchase.
