What a fun filled and great learning event experienced by all on 8 June 2019.
Congregations invited to the Expo were Pelican Park and Knole Park. The MC, Thomas Smith did the opening and welcoming, and the Evangelist Franklin Hendricks prayed.
A special video message from Priest Schilder was screened, encouraging our children to keep on learning and playing the recorder. Then a brief history on the recorder was done by sister Melissa Malan. Mrs B (Leonie Beelders) from NACTV, did a recorder demonstration by introducing the different types of recorders, namely the Descant, Treble, Tenor and Bass recorders. Much interaction in terms of questions and answers took place, followed by a musical item.
Thereafter, Mrs B was interviewed by two of LRE recorder players, Liam Jonkers and Jamie-Lee Absolon. In conclusion, a conductor’s demonstration was done by Roger Hughes. He asked the SS conductor, sister Beaton to join in and show a few children how to conduct.
The Evangelist Reuben Beelders closed in prayer and the children were given an opportunity to take photos with Mrs B, while refreshments were served.
