University of Plymouth Choral Society concerts always tend to have something special about them, and none more than the Christmas event. However, this year’s event just seemed to have some extra charisma.
Ten Tors Orchestra has just had a makeover, only to rise again under the banner of Peninsula Arts Sinfonietta, although admittedly any outward signs seem more political, than musical.
This unique happening involved three consecutive events, linked by the theme of memories – those of loved ones now no longer here with us.
There is nothing more disappointing than going to hear a large choir sing something they’ve been working really hard on, only for the guest soloists to end up having all the best bits on the night.
Peninsula Arts in conjunction with Suzanne Sparrow Language School mounted a delightful tribute to William Shakespeare, 400 years to the day after his death, as part of the current celebrations happening around the country, and at Plymouth University.
The enduring influence of William Shakespeare will be celebrated through a series of musical performances, films and talks at Plymouth University.
Most of us can remember our school concerts, whether we took part, or were just there to listen.
