The buffet format again proved to be popular, and the £10 price-tag very attractive. It proved to be excellent value for money, with the quality of the food widely appreciated. It was so encouraging to see so many lady and younger OFs.
Emily Heldreich (current student) provided fine musical accompaniment as guests arrived for the reception, while the after-supper highlight was the wonderful singing of Christina Myachina-Johnson (V01-06) who treated us to 4 items, one expertly accompanied by Director of Music, Tim Rhodes on a baroque trumpet. She was accompanied by Charmaine Cooper. This young star of the Prague National Opera showed exactly why she has been landing high profile roles. A wonderful musical interlude.
