A Midsummer Musical Treat
Friday 13th June, 2014 - 10:23am
Mousehole Male Voice Choir's Midsummer Concert in Paul Church on Sunday 22nd June will virtually be two concerts in one because the Guest Artiste will be the multi-talented Alastair Taylor, an internationally renowned pianist, organist, baritone and conductor. His talents and personality shine through his performances, making him much in demand; a truly unforgettable character who draws audiences wherever he performs. Alastair is in Barnstaple the night before as the Musical Director of the Cornwall Symphony Chorus, but will be back in good time to join with us.
You won't be short of entertainment from the choir who have become one of Cornwall's best musical ambassadors under the direction of Stephen Lawry with the brilliant support of Annette Turton, accompanist. It has been a busy and eventful year for the choir since this time last year, with many successful concerts, visits to schools and a trip to ‘The Smoke’ to sing in Southwark Cathedral, and with the other Cornish male voice choirs at the Royal Albert Hall.
The choir's recordings are sold worldwide, particularly to distant Cornish Cousins who want a reminder of 'home'. They have followed their very popular CD ‘From Cornish Cliffs’ with a wonderful selection of Christmas music on ‘Christmas With Mousehole’, which has been very well received. Both will be available at the concert, of course.
Included in the choir's programme will Tony Cliff's 'The Mermaid of Zennor', a choral arrangement of Puccini's 'Nessun Dorma', the beautiful 'When I Hear Music','The Exodus Song' and the stirring 'Anthem' from Chess.
The price of admission will be £6, an absolute bargain for what is on offer, and programmes will available in advance from Morrab Studio Mousehole News and Kings Arms, Paul.
Please note that the village will be heaving with cars on this special occasion and you are asked to ensure that when you park 'buses and emergency vehicles have room to pass unhindered.
