Sounds of jazz and more

Southside community choir Sounds International is tuning up for its annual charity concert in Eastwood Park Theatre on Tuesday (April 28) with proceeds going to Macmillan Cancer Support.

The choir, which is led by founder and conductor Eddie Binnie and accompanied by 18-year-old Clarkston musician and co-conductor Richard Scholfield, will perform songs that range from a wonderfully lyrical arrangement of Glen Miller’s Moonlight Serenade to protest songs and even the Beatles.

Also performing on the night will be The Williams Jazz Quartet that will see Richard Scholfield switch to saxophone and join the quartet’s other members, Fergus McCreadie on keyboard, Mark Hendry on bass and Tom Potter on drums for some swinging jazz numbers guaranteed to get toes tapping and itching to dance in the aisles.

This particular fab four of jazz is getting a name for itself in the four corners of the international jazzworld, not least for its diminutive dynamo Tom Potter and his stunning musical choreography with a set of drumsticks and the new kid on the brink of stardom, Richard Scholfield.

Remember their names and make a point of getting tickets for this latest show on Scholfield’s home turf.

Sounds International is a registered charity and performs free of charge to raise funds for other charities and needy causes — in the last 10 years, the choir has raised more than £50,000 for charities at home and abroad.Tickets for this one-off concert cost £10 and worth three times that in terms of talent and entertainment.
