The 4th Annual International Music Festival

25th November 2017

For the fourth of our music festivals we had the pleasure of listening to our various groups that perform regularly at services. We were also pleased welcome a new friend, Mohibur Miah who played a specially composed piece on Sitar for us.

The programme was varied and included "Feel my love" and "Ain't Misbehaving" from the Folk group; Hilumin Mong Bayan Ko ( "Lord Heal Our Land") and Labis Na Galak ("Extreme Delight in the Lord") from the Filipino Choir; "Rockabye" from the Junior Indian Community; "Lord make me a means of your peace" from the Teenage Choir; and Mwishe - Mwishi (Come to me you who are burdened) and Akekho Ofana No Jesu (There's no one like Jesus) from the African choir.

The programme also included a group of Iranian musicians lead by Hammid Tayyebi. They played and sang traditional Iranian music on violin, santoor, tonbak and daf.

A really successful event finished off by Nostro Coro singing "Down by the river to pray" and "Let your little light shine, shine, shine".

Annual International Music Festival 5 will be on
24th November 2018.
