Also in the presence of District Governor Stewart Grainger and the Mayoress of Dartford.

The audience was treated to a feast of music both piano, saxophone, violin, and singers in several different styles.  Connor was classical, singing a song from Vaughn Williams, and an aria from ‘The Magic Flute’.  Rosie, who is a pianist, played a piece from Debussy – followed by a spirited rendering of a Toccata by Khachaturian.
