Following our performance in February with Vintage Brass, La Nova Singers once again shared the stage with an assortment of local musical talent at the Mayor of Christchurch’s Charity Concert. This wonderfully varied event took place at the Regent Centre on 1 March, St David’s Day; and proceeds from the concert will be going to the Mayor’s chosen charities.
The audience enjoyed singing from Highcliffe Junior Choir and ‘Light and Shade’; and performances by the Air Training Corps Band, Highcliffe Brass Band, Taverners Big Band and the Band of the Royal British Legion.
La Nova singers sang a small selection of our most popular pieces, including ‘Tonight’ from West Side Story, and the beautiful ‘Cantique de Jean Racine’ by Fauré.
The concert finished with a nod to the Welsh national day, with audience and performers joining together to sing some traditional Welsh hymns.
If you didn’t manage to attend this special concert, a DVD of the event (with proceeds going to the Mayor’s charities) is available from Netfora.tv (http://www.netfora.tv/charity_concert_2010.html). Look out for the special lighting effects in the first few minutes of our performance!
