THE Aliquando Chamber Choir has been granted special permission to perform one of the most well
THE Aliquando Chamber Choir has been granted special permission to perform one of the most well known songs to have come out of the West End.
Callum Chamberlain will sing the title role in a choral performance of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, as part of the choir’s Concert of Many Colours.
“We are extremely privileged to have been given permission to perform this work as part of a choral concert,” said musical director Anne Evans. “Permission is very hard to come by as currently a full production is touring the country and abroad.”
The choir will also explore music with colour in their titles, such as Sting’s Fields of Gold, Stanford’s Blue Bird, Jeannie with the Light Brown Hair and the Robbie Burns poem My Love is like a Red, Red Rose, to name but a few. Pianist Anita D’Attellis will accompany the whole evening and play Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue too.
The concert is at the Christ Church Centre on May 16, at 7.30pm, with drinks from 6.30pm. Tickets cost £15 from the centre or on (01491) 577733, from Aliquando on (01491) 578238, from the Henley Music School or from members of the choir.
A donation will be made to the Henley Music School, for whom there will be a retiring collection too.
