One person said how she envied Reg Wilsher for being able to play with so much enjoyment, and to be able to sit down with a piano for relaxation.
Gillian Salmon, well known Cookham musician who performs with the Cantorum choir played complicated Dvorak duets with Helena Brown.
Clara Matthews age 16 played a powerful Brahms Rapsody without music!
Then she was joined by Gillian and Helena who all played the one piano with Six hands and a delightful piece by Gautier - absolutely delightful, tuneful piece. 
Eleanor Griffiths - a well known Cantorum singer with a beautiful rich contralto voice played three of the best known Schubert songs which  demonstrated the perfection of Schubert's piano writings.
The whole evening gave great delight to the audience
