Christmas Gospel Jazz Concert



     Last Sunday I joined in a Spanish confectionery class, which started 10:30 a.m. and finished around 4:30 p.m. (If you’re interested in the diary, please read this: ★Traditional Spanish Sweets Class!1D0F2197A6F55843!2409.entry )

     After the class, I went back home once and then went to a church nearby. It’s Bethany Church. I used to go there every Sunday when I was a child. But it was my first time to enter its brand-new chapel, which was just completed last September. 

     There was a concert at 7:00 p.m. in the chapel that day. The players were Ron Brown, the saxophonist, and Alfie Silas Durio, the singer, and her husband, the percussionist. 

     Ron is now taking play an active part in his own genre Gospel Jazz all over the world. He used to play behind Diana Ross, Natalie Cole, Anita Baker, Whitney Huston, and Stevie Wonder and other famous musicians.

     Alfie is also active in church activities as a singer all over the world, but she joins as a session singer in great musicians as Michael Jackson and Whitney Huston, and in also many soundtracks as The Lion King and Pretty Woman.

     I got a great opportunity to see and listen to the music created by such great musicians! How wonderful! The chapel itself was also beautiful and wonderful, and their music was amazing! What a lucky person I am! I was able to enjoy the performance by the first-class players at such a nice place for free!!! Of course, I donated money though. 

     After the concert, the participants and the musicians had a small party. All of us enjoyed chatting over hot apple cider. I bought a Ron’s CD and an Alfie’s one and got their autographs. Yaaaay! I had a fulfilling day last Sunday!
