Review of the "Evening with Lesley Garrett and Lemington Male Voice Choir"

LesleyGarrettLemington Male Voice Choir celebrated their 2012 Celebrity Concert in the Newcastle City Hall on Saturday 16th June. Their special guest for the evening was the UK’s favourite soprano, Lesley Garrett

The choir was on top form for the concert singing a wide range of pieces from English, American, Swedish composers and arrangements from their very own Director of Music, David Conway. In addition they performed a couple of joint items with Lesley, these to a high standard with the minimum of rehearsal.

Lesley, as expected sang beautifully, including songs from opera, folk songs, operetta and from musicals. She held the audience and choir alike in the palm of her hands, thrilling the 1300+ patrons with her sheer brilliance of voice and performance. Accompanied by David Barnard, she certainly gave everyone a night to remember. She quotes, “Last month I had the most wonderful time performing with Lemington Male Voice Choir in Newcastle City Hall. The choir not only made me feel very welcome but sang beautifully for our songs together and for their own solos. It was a special evening and one I will remember for a long time and I hope we might have the chance to do it all over again in the future”.

The choir were delighted to be supporting the Evening Chronicle Sunshine Fund with this concert and are delighted to report that £3000 was presented to the charity.

A brilliant night which will be remembered for years to come by all those involved.
