Yesterday (11th October), Millman Street Community Centre members were treated to a Stories & Music workshop, hosted by Emily and Calina. They played various tunes on violins, including The Lambeth Walk, and told stories.
It wasn’t to everyone’s taste: “They’re alright as people,” said Ivy, “But I didn’t like [the workshop]. It was a bit highbrow,” she added, “Singing and violins.” Despite her reservations, she said: “It’s nice that they come; most of the singing things here are good.”
“They were great, fantastic,” David said. “Very good! They played Any Old Iron,” he added.
“It was very good,” said Fred. “She [Emily] explained all about the violin and the strings and how it works. They played Edelweiss,” he recalled.
“It was very good,” said Helena. “Very nice! I enjoyed it! I like all those songs!”
She added that afterwards, they chatted and talked about “all different things. It was a nice afternoon.”
Emily and Calina’s Stories & Music workshops are on Tuesday afternoons at Millman Street Community Centre.
