The Surrey Hills Singers were delighted to share the concert platform with the newly formed mixed voiced Choir Remix this spring. The two choirs made a lovely contrast in terms of vocal forces and repertoire and the Surrey Hills Young Voices added an extra dimension with a guest performance.
The Surrey Hills Singers entertained the audience with a wide selection of songs from an Italian motet from the renaissance to the swing number “Sing, Sing, Sing”, complete with choreography provided by Jenni. Also included in our programme were two more challenging songs, “Come ye Makers of Song” and an arrangement of “Deep River”. By popular demand the choir sang “The Rose”. This song has become our signature tune and the choir created a still atmosphere with their beautiful and communicative singing.
The Surrey Hills Young Voices also created a wonderful atmosphere with their lovely performance of “I Give You a Song” and delighted the audience with a choreographed rendition of the stage song, “Food Glorious Food”. The children processed wearily on to the stage clasping their bowls whilst singing about eating gruel every day. They then threw their bowls into the air in joyous relief at the thought of real food. Joe did a brilliant solo of the first line and, to the children’s delight, one of the bowls ended up in the in the flower arrangement at the back of the stage and stayed there for the rest of the concert!
