Stardust!  Songs from Stage and Screen

For our summer concert, we are singing a exhilarating selection of songs written for the musical theatre and cinema. The shows we are featuring include Oliver!, Carousel, Les Misérables and West Side Story - the programme above (price: one shilling) is from the original 1958 London production. The songs will be catchy, uplifting and affecting - ideal for a summer evening.  Tickets cost just £12 (£6 for under 16s).

We had a brilliant Choral Celebration concert on 30 March, when we sang    Mozart's  glorious Coronation Mass, one of his most inspired and popular  works. Our second choral piece was Haydn's delicious Te Deum. There were two further works:  Vivaldi's Concerto for two trumperts, which featured our vice-president, the renowned Crispian Steele-Perkins; and a second Mozart piece, Exsultate, Jubilate, with a stunning solo performance by the Australian soprano Kiandra Howarth.  The applause seemed endless!   And now to our next concert - Stardust! Songs from Stage and Screen at St Mildred's, Addiscombe on 15 June.
