FAIRY TALES, MAGIC & MYSTERY
2nd April 2016
This concert fully lived up to its title with songs like the Witches Chorus from Macbeth to The Wizard of Oz or Chorus of the Ancestors and When the Night Wind Howls from Ruddigore to songs from Snow White.
Our soloists for the night where Suzanne Robertson, Nia Howe and Janette Davidson. Notable performances came from Suzanne’s magnificent rendition of Mozart’s Queen of the Night from The Magic Flute and Nia’s delightful version of Defying Gravity from Wicked.
Money was raised for Musical Keys a Norwich based charity committed to making music accessible to people all ages and disabilities.
A BEWTIFUL NORFOLK CHRISTMAS
12th December 2015
Over 220 people filled the church for this sell-out concert. Guest Keith Skipper told the Christmas Story in Norfolk dialect – very different and very amusing!
The choir were also joined by Peter Thompson (Treble) and once again by singer Sarah Browne.
Donations for the programmes totalling £300 were in aid of Diabetes UK.
Review comments included : “a veritable cornucopia of treats….” “an impressive range of music….” “A very creditable rendering of Morten Lauridsen’s, Sure On This Shining Night and should be particularly congratulated for being prepared to tackle more challenging music such as this.” “Malcolm Munday gave a very authentic, confident performance of The Postman’s Lament – an absolute joy.” “a wonderful evening”…. “such a successful community event.”
