On May 7th an enthusiastic audience gathered at the Bergen Hall for an evening of musical entertainment to help fund the annual Bergen event, Strings and Keys. This project, spearheaded by Laurie and Jamie Syer, brings students of all levels to study with top-notch music teachers from across the country.
The evening’s entertainment included the group, Seven Fiddlesworth, the instrumental quartet, Four 4 Treble, Jamie and Laurie Syer, and Gerald Ingeveld and the Bergen Choir (which turned out to be the entire audience.) All the performances were excellent and we were once again reminded of how fortunate we are to have so much talent in our own neighbourhood.
Equally important to the evening’s success was the baking auction. Pies, cakes, buns, bread, and numerous other delicious items brought spirited bidding due to the efforts of intrepid auctioneer, Ken Walker, and his irrepressible assistant, Gerald Ingeveld.
