Enjoy songs from the musicals and more with Hi-Notes at Grantham Guildhall




Grantham music group Hi-Notes is putting on a concert at the Guildhall Ballroom tomorrow (Saturday) night at 7.30pm.

'Putting on the Glitz' will be Hi-Notes' eighth concert at the Guildhall, but their first in the fine ballroom.

Concerts, not only to entertain but also to raise money in support of local good causes, were the intention of founder the members – the late Ian Saddington and Yvonne Selby (nee Eldred) – and after more than 20 years of performances throughout and occasionally beyond Lincolnshire, this remains the group's aim.

Hi-Notes is a member of 'Making Music' – the National Federation of Music Societies. It is a non-profit making group and makes no charges for its services.

Starting life as a quartet, it is now comfortably established as a sextet. As it has lost members over the years, new ones have joined, bringing both musical and technical talents and so ensuring its continued existence.

Songs from the shows remain the core of their programme but, as with tomorrow's concert, songs from outside that genre also play a significant part.

The group hopes that the audience will enjoy the programme they are going to present, and also appreciate the contribution made by the young stars from the Grantham School of Dance who will be brought along by former Hi-Notes member Sonya Mahoney.

So sit back and enjoy an exciting programme of songs from great Broadway and West End musicals including Chicago, Half a Sixpence, Les Miserables and Phantom of the Opera. Add a taste of Disney and travel back through the years with old favourites from Carole King, Cilla Black and Dusty Springfield.

Tickets, priced at £10, are available from the Guildhall box office, call 01476 406158 or visit www.guildhallartscentre.com

Proceeds will go to St Barnabas Hospice in the Hospital.
