CONCERT – Central Hall Redcar

Accreditation the Redcar and Saltburn-by-the-Sea Gazette 27/10/1871.


            On the 24th inst, a grand concert was given in the Central Hall for the benefit of the Home for Sick Children at Coatham. The performers were Miss Hartley, Miss Turner, Miss Moore, Miss Ganner, Messrs Johnson, Heart, Searle, Brentnall, Preston, and Spensley. The vocal and instrumental pieces were all well rendered. If any parts were singled out as especially excellent there would be the beautiful old balance “Auld Robin Gray” and “Home, sweet, Home,” which were given by Miss Hartley, with a pathos and power seldom surpassed, and Handle’s “Waft her Angels,” which was sung with great taste and effect by Mr. John Hart, the well known tenor. The large audience was evidently pleased and frequently encored the pieces.
