I’ve just uploaded a clip of the Choir singing Down to the River to Pray in Chamalieres-sur-Loire while on tour in summer. It seems a long time ago now. The odd thing about the night of this concert was that the heavens had opened and it was exceptionally wet, a merciful respite from the heat of the previous few days. I hope you enjoy the singing.
Here is a clip from our Christmas concert of our youngest soloist at our Christmas concert at Medina Theatre. It is Ella Brear singing the hit from Disney’s film Frozen, Do You Want to Build a Snowman?. We reckon she did a brilliant job and showed great singing and acting skills. We hope you like it too.
It’s still a few weeks until Christmas but the lights are going up and the nights are getting long. To help get you in the mood, we’ve uploaded a clip from our concert at East Cowes Town Hall last year to Youtube. It features the Choir singing ‘Why Not Buy An Extra Present?’, which is not a common Christmas song but has good harmonies and the message is an important one.
These are not the best quality but they do give a flavour of the excellent Motown concert the Choir gave on July 12th. For those in the Choir, it’s a chance to see what an impressive sight we were, as well as creating a great sound. I think the risers at the back and having that extra height at the back really adds to the stature of the performance.
Here is the first video that I’ve processed and put on Youtube, more will follow. It is our Director, Hannah Brear, with Cyrus Dean singing Sail On.
Here is the second clip, this time of all the Choir enjoying being part of our encore of All Night Long. The audience was up and dancing and clapping, and it was a great feeling to be in the Choir seeing people appreciating our concert.
Now the final video, a medley of several of the songs performed on the night, including a clip from the Island Community Glee Club. You’ll hear Heard It Through The Grapevine, the blokes singing My Girl, Nick Sephton’s first solo with the Choir, plus several others. It’s a fantastic 6 minutes of viewing.
