Aliquando Chamber Choir’s next concert on 20 May is titled appropriately ‘The BEST of BOTH WORLDS’ as they are exploring and enjoying singing numbers termed both ‘Classic’ and ‘Popular’.
The concert at the Christ Church Centre will see the choir sing from Billy Joel’s ‘Piano Man’ to Offenbach’s ‘Barcarolle’, back again to ‘The Rose’ a song Bette Midler made famous then onward to the beautiful ‘Sure on this Shining Night’ by Morten Lauridsen.
Anne Evans from Aliquando said, “It’s a programme we have structured most carefully by also choosing two songs from the world of film, Morricone’s ‘Gabriel’s Oboe’ which he wrote for The Missionary and ‘Let the River Run’ from Working Girl to be enjoyed by all who come. Additionally, we are very pleased that local young Soprano, Ellie Vockins will be a soloist for us that night. From London, Bass David Banbury will also join the line-up.”
The charity collecting on the night will be Rivertime Boat Trust a multi award winning charity that offers disabled and disadvantaged adults, children and young people an opportunity to develop a long-term involvement with the River Thames by providing a safe, supportive and stimulating environment aboard their boat ‘Rivertime’.
The concert starts at 7.00 pm, tickets are £18 or £5 for under 16s and are available from 01491 578238 or from the Christ Church Centre on 01491 577733.
