Summer 2017 concert
The award-winning Medina Community Choir, fresh from performing with Blake earlier in the summer, are staging their major summer concert “Royals” on Thursday 13th July, 7.30pm at Medina Theatre. The royal theme includes songs from all genres, from Rock and Pop (Queen, Prince, Lady Gaga and even the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll) to Musical Theatre (My Fair Lady, The Lion King and The King and I) with jazz (DUKE Ellington) and easy listening (Carole KING)!
The Choir is now in its eleventh year and has over 100 members who will all be singing at the Royals concert, adorned with crowns, tiaras and hats fit for Ascot! A lot of the more modern pieces have never been written for or performed by choirs so Choir Director, Hannah Brear, has arranged a lot of the music for the choir herself and feels that the choir has never sounded better, with rehearsals for this year’s concert starting back in January this year! The choir will be accompanied at the concert by an amazing band of musicians which have really energized the choir’s sound, without drowning out the beautiful vocal harmonies.
For tickets for the choir’s major summer concert, Royals, please book online through Medina Theatre website or phone the Box Office on (01983) 823884.
The Choir have had an incredibly busy year so far with plenty more to come, including performing with the headline act of this year’s Classic Isle (The Royal Marines Association Concert Band) on Saturday 8th July.
The choir are also busy preparing for their fourth tour to France after Cowes Week and will be holding a pre-tour free Gospel concert at Cowes Baptist Church on Thursday 27th July at 7.30pm with a retiring collection for the Red Cross Grenfell Tower London Fire Disaster Appeal.
Hannah will also be leading this year’s Big Sing at Barton Manor in aid of the Hospice entitled “Motown Magic”. Last year’s Big Sing event was an absolute triumph and it’s hoped that there’ll be another excellent turnout this year, on Sunday 15th July for both experienced and beginner singers who fancy trying their hand at some Motown classics like “Superstition” and “I’ll be there”. More details of the Big Sing and how to book your place here.
We look forward to seeing you this summer!
