Want to sing in a community choir, live in Scunthorpe, aged 3-19? Well, you should join this one; there are no auditions and the training is professional. The standard is high – they are a former BBC 3 Choir of the Year – and this was an enjoyable concert. The children tackled the modern, upbeat programme with enthusiasm and polish. A special mention for the two soloists who did ‘Popular’ from ‘Wicked and ‘Practical Arrangement’ from Sting’s recent album; they performed expressively and sang well. I especially liked ‘Alice’ – sung by the whole choir with lots of personality and gestures. They generated a welcoming, happy atmosphere and it was a lovely evening in good company.
