The Festival's range of music was really enhanced on Saturday afternoon by a classical recital in the Methodist Chapel by Frances Hughes, local well known soprano.

Ably accompanied by Treona Holden on piano, an appreciative audience heard Fran sing, firstly, a set of three 17th and 18th Century Italian songs, then four short songs by Beethoven and, finally, three opera arias by Mozart and Verdi.

All were sung with verve and expression by Fran's soaring and powerful soprano voice. Fran's explanation of the background and content of the songs was also educational.

Treona complimented the recital with two beautifully executed piano solos by Mendelssohn and Beethoven.
