An Evening with Julie Felix at Hazelwood House
6th June 2015
Julie has been performing at Hazelwood House for over 20 years. After so many wonderful experiences with her it is hard to find new adjectives of praise – her performance deepens, expands and becomes ever more moving and delightful.
On this last evening I witnessed the audience move from tears to laughter from deep listening to joyful singing.
Julie has such a great talent to engage everyone in the room regardless of age or musical preferences it is a joy to behold and even more of a joy to take part. It makes no difference if Julie is singing to 50 or 5,000 her connection with each person is remarkable – you feel as if she is singing just for you.
The program had a wide range of mood and style. Subjects of protest moved into sad songs of love and leaving; then the room became filled with the jubilant singing of Miss Martin – a well known favourite which never seems to pall.
Julie makes no secret of being seventy-seven this year and is a wonderful encouragement to any one thinking they are approaching “old age”; her voice is still so beautiful, and along with her glorious looks and high kicks she defies the meaning of such a term.
We have already booked Julie for next summer at Hazelwood and I am sure people will be hurrying back for another wondrous evening with this sparkle of life called Julie Felix. Don’t miss seeing her!
