Past Concerts

Saturday, March 5, 2016 – Shirley Baptist Church
What a night that was!
On arriving at Shirley Baptist Church (a new venue for us) Caroline was immediately informed that 5 sopranos had succumbed to a winter virus and were unable to attend (plus one alto).  This left us a little unbalanced with 7 brave sopranos ready to take the melody out to our audience. Of course, the show must go on, but what would the show be like?
The Sops did Caroline proud!  We could hear them throughout the show (thank you to the other parts for being sympathetic) and they were simply wonderful.
This concert was shared with the Band – another first for us with this group – and so we introduced songs new and old to our combined audiences.  Our Novello Choral Pops book continues to be popular – we sang Over the Rainbow, Try a Little Tenderness and Georgia on my Mind – all songs from the 1930s.  What a songwriting era that was!
In our second half we performed our Beatles medly (Beatles in Revue) and a Latin American version of Fool on the Hill – made popular by Sergio Mendes in 1968.
Like to hear more?  Our next concert is Saturday 21st May 2016 at Shirley Methodist Church.
