Spring Songs

Saturday, 17 April 2010

Our Spring concert supported the charity Winston’s Wish. The concert was a great success and we enjoyed singing in Emmanuel Church, Leckhampton. The choir sang a varied selection of songs, and finished up with a concert version of “Oliver” which the audience thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated.

Masterclass with Maria Jaguz

Workshop and Masterclass with Maria Jagusz

Saturday, 30 January 2010

The choir enjoy a workshop and masterclass with Maria Jagusz.

What an absolutely wonderful day Maria gave us! A day-long singing lesson for all, audience and soloists alike. We all enjoyed it so much, and learned so much, not only about singing technique, but about that all-important aspect of performance  - communication with the audience.

Christmas Magic - our Christmas Concert 2009

Saturday, 12 December 2009

This was a truly magical occasion. The choir sang a selection of Christmas carols and songs, and  our guest soloists delighted everyone with their wonderful playing. Pianist Rosie Breckon gave us Mozart, Scarlatti, Liszt and Chopin, and electrified and enchanted choir and audience alike. So, too, did violinists Gerry and Gill Hopkin, who played the Pastorelle from Corelli’s Christmas Concerto and also accompanied the choir in several of their songs, including ‘Mary’s Boy Child’ and Elgar’s ‘The Snow’.

Morgan Motor Company Centenary

Sunday, 2 August 2009

Gotherington Singers were honoured to be asked to sing at the Morgan Motor Company Centenary celebrations at Cheltenham Racecourse. Luckily the sun shone all day, and we all had a most enjoyable time.

We rehearsed in the morning, where we had time to get used to the stage and all the microphones and cables, and opened the evening concert with a selection from our lighter repertoire including a concert version of Les Miserables, where we were joined by baritone John Qualtrough.
