Youth Voices informal concert

Saturday 13th March - Sweeney Todd at large in Penge!

byv-winter-march-2013

A performance of Carey Blyton's Sweeney Todd formed the centerpiece of Youth Voices informal Winter concert.

Narrated by Junior Chioir parent Jo Clegg, the suite of songs was performed with vigour and with some fine solos to tell the gruesome tale.... Ivan's ghoulish Mwaaahahaa! will be resonating around the rafters of the beautiful Holy Trinity church for many months! Sophie accompanied the choir on an unfamiliar keyboard with great skill and confidence.

A beautiful instrumental flute solo of Elgar's Chanson de Matin was performed by Miriam. There followed some fantastic solo singing of musical show favourites by Emily, Hannah and Megan with Robyn singing the moving My Immortal by Ben Moody.

Ben - our Ben that is! was joined by Miriam on flute and Mark on guitar, and sang the Last Rose of Summer very tenderly and with feeling. The audience appreciated the musicality of the entire evening and, this more intimate concert showed off the talents of Youth Voices singers, in a wonderful space and setting. The warm welcome from Revd. Nick Read and all at Holy Trinity means it is a privilege to be able to sing here. Thanks to all who helped prepare and run the evening.

There are some photographs of the concert by Nick Charles online here.
