Songs from Rodgers & Hammerstein and Parry!
Chandos Choir hopes that those of you who came to our Spring concert really enjoyed it! We were delighted to introduce 2 super soloists to the stage - Lee Durnsford and Carrie Stanley entertained us all thoroughly with their beautiful solos 'Some Enchanted Evening' and 'Bali H'ai' from South Pacific, and their lovely interplay & singing in the scenes from Oklahoma.
The choir added to the fun with the men longingly singing 'There is nothing like a dame' - whereupon the women feistily replied 'I'm gonna wash that man right out of my hair, an inspired running order.
The lovely cycle of Parry's Songs of Farewell really deserves to be far better known. Hopefully we have shown that he is more than 'Jerusalem' and 'I was Glad' - and I look forward to more performances of these gorgeous choral songs. We hope to see you at our next concert which will also be at St Andrews Church, Woodmansterne Coulsdon CR5 2DN, 7.30pm on Saturday 12th October.
