Pictured left: Me, with Deborah Bull, Darren Abrahams and Lindy Tennent-Brown, following our concert in Eye, Suffolk on October 1st. This was a first airing of a new programme built around the idea of a throwing a party, in which we follow a group of characters through the evening, from the planning and preparation, to clearing up the mess afterwards. It features a genre-busting range of musical styles from Rossini to Sondheim, via Roy Orbison, Mozart and Noel Coward, and the rapturous reception we received from our audience confirmed our belief that this a great way to construct a concert, drawing on the full range of our skills and experience in opera, recital and music theatre to make connections between songs from very different worlds. We also like to tailor repertoire to the particular event, devise seamless musical linkages, and sharpen up lyrics to make the whole programme flow. Look out for further performances of this fantastic programme.
