11 Jan 2014 Simeon at Barnt Green

And so into 2014!  This first event of the year was technically not a CMM event, but it was great to go along and support it.  Katie Leaver, formerly of the CMM office, and a regular soloist, held a special day to learn the musical Simeon and perform it in the evening.  A number of CMM staff supported it - Tim played drums and Roger piano, as well as Annie on viola and Mary in the choir.  Tim's family also joined in with Emma on violin, Michael on guitar, and Bethany singing.  Roger had a bit of a shock when he sat down to play piano to realise that he had never actually played the music!

The day went really well, with the children particularly stealing the show.  Katie was amazing, and the final performance was great.
