 A concert organised by the Miall family to help the Cookham Kedida Project (in association with Christian Aid). entitled "WARBLING FOR WATER" was held at Holy Trinity Church on Friday 21st September 2007. The aim of the project being to "Bring clean water to 60,000 people in Ethiopia"


Hugh Maill started singing withy Holy Trinity aged seven and was a member of the Berkshire Youth Choir for several years.

He is currently reading Law at Cambridge where he holds a choral scholarship.  His many friends and colleagues joined together last night to give Cookham one of the best concerts of the year .


Warbling for Water" gave the audience a treat as they were entertained by a 25 strong Vocal Ensemble with

musical pieces from Maurice Durufle, Elgar and Serge Rachmaninov as well as Negro Spiritual numbers.


 Superb soloists included Hugh Miall the organiser of the gig,  Laura Eyre (Alto) Mark Griffiths, and Aidan Coburn (Tenor) who sang "Just One Cornetto" or something

resembling it!  Another highlight was the male voice barbershop ensemble.  A fun piece to the evening was the close harmony group with their rendition of The Bare Necessities. 


This was only possible with the talent and pianist ability of Cookham's own Jean Bryant who accompanied many pieces throughout with her dancing digits on the newly acquired grand piano of Holy Trinity Church.


A large audience of 200 or more  enjoyed one of the best night's of their lives.  It's a shame if you missed it.
