Jonathan Veira a triumph

July 02, 2011 at 11:02 PM

They were swinging in the aisles at St Luke's on Friday night.

If the idea of an opera singer performing in a church was not your idea of a fun evening - then you missed a gem!

Those who were able to come to St Luke’s on Friday were treated to a tour de force by Jonathan Veira. Not so much an international top ranking opera singer (although he ticks that box) more an all round performer, twisting the audience between hysterical laughter to moments of true tranquil emotion.

Jokes, stories, music, memories of a life time as a public performer and entertainer had his audience enthralled for over two hours.

His impromptu duo with Sheila Austin (she had no idea this was coming) would have been a hit on You Tube – it was brilliant. His timing, improvising musical skills, and true empathy with his audience was brilliant. Sheila will never forget it – nor will most of the audience.

Showing his formidable skills he performed on request an impersonation of Elvis Presley singing “Love me Tender”. Elvis may have left the building – but with your eyes closed that was difficult to believe! He was there in St Luke’s last Friday! Amazing.

The event promoted to raise funds for St Luke’s was the second time Jonathan Veira has been to Grayshott. If he comes again – book your seat immediately – it’s bound to be a sell out.
