At the same ball, a carnival themed affair for charity, several teachers from the local music school entertained the great and the good with their party turns.

Idris gave us a rendition of 'Yesterday' in English but sung as if it had been written according to Hungarian phonemic conventions...kinda 'Yeshtairdoi', if you see what I mean.

She then followed this up with an air of Schubert's, performed in full diva mode, complete with feather boa but, quite deliberately yet excrutiatingly, just off-pitch. Try it some time, it's harder than you think.

As a result of this show-stopping performance, she was later approached by one of the local notables who enquired as to whether or not she would be interested in the post of musical director and conductor of the town choir.
