Opera in Morcott 17 June 2017

Thank you to all who supported this fundraising event. Amici were superb, the music was wonderful, the atmosphere electric and we had great fun!

CONCERT PUBLICITY: Lovers of light opera have a treat in store on Saturday 17 June 2017, when Amici Chamber Choir present Gilbert & Sullivan’s Trial by Jury and other operatic highlights, in Morcott church.

The superb 18-strong choir is joined by guest soloists Nick Hardy (Opera North), Joanne Rondel and Judith Tinston. These musical friends all come together under the leadership of George Robey.

The first half of the programme is Gilbert & Sullivan’s brilliant Trial by Jury, a comic opera in One Act.  After a relaxed interval during which wine and soft drinks will be available to buy, as well as raffle tickets, the second half of the concert will begin. This is a mix of ‘operatic hits’ including a show-stopping Nessun Dorma and other pieces arranged specially for the concert by choir members.

Amici has performed across the UK for 20 years, from Manchester’s Concert Halls to the stately homes of England, and on TV for programmes such as Songs of Praise. We are very lucky to have a choir of this standard come to Morcott.
