Devon Knows How They Make It So Musical! (Free) (Take Note Community Choir)

By | Published on Thursday 15 August 2019

Well this was fun – an hour of show tunes with accompaniment, all carefully chosen and arranged to bring out the strengths of the Take Note Community Choir. The musical director was unobtrusively impressive; the choir followed her clear conducting exactly and achieved good dynamics, timing and a rich, full sound that wasn’t over-produced. She let her choir shine with their excellent diction and tuning, and the unison singing was particularly strong and joyful. The programme was varied; there was an Andrew Lloyd Webber medley, of course, but we were also treated to songs from ‘The Lion King’, ‘Oh What a Lovely War!’ and ‘Skyfall’. A lovely soloist pleaded ‘Don’t Rain On My Parade’ but despite this there was flooding in Edinburgh that night!

Various churches, run ended.
