UTTOXETER residents were out in force to welcome an evening of music.
The Mayor and Mayoress of Uttoxeter, Hugh and Hermione Montgomery, welcomed guests to A Night at the Proms at Uttoxeter Town Hall featuring Indian tenor Anando Mukerjee and local soprano Linda Hammond with Uttoxeter Town Band.
Mukerjee performed three solos to raise cash for the Youth Drop In Centre, Fleur De Lys and the Youth Emotional Support Service (YESS).
Councillor Montgomery said: “It was a super evening and we were full to capacity. I had 30 civics come out to support me and we sold 120 tickets.”
Rob Smith, of Uttoxeter Town Band, added it was a pleasure to work with Mukerjee and accompany him.
He said: “His professionalism in both our afternoon rehearsal and in his concert performance were fantastic. I would like to congratulate the band on their performance on the night maybe one of their best in recent times.”
