Our Spring concert on the 5th June 2015 was as far as we know the only concert in Teignmouth Sings’ history where we actually sold all available tickets… and SOLD OUT had to be pinned to the door!
This was a super concert, a long time in the planning, preparation and rehearsing. The venue of the newly refurbished Our Lady and St Patrick’s was probably the best we had ever sung in as regards its acoustics, not to mention the warmth of our reception from the Church and the large audience.
Brand new for this concert were Something’s Coming and Tonight from West Side Story.In rehearsal we’d been a little nervous about performing these complicated compositions with their intricate harmonies, subtle key & time changes – but all went well on the night!
Other offerings include our big sets of the Andrew Lloyd Webber medley, Beatles in Review, Fiddler on the Roof, Mamma Mia, and to finish off with …..Les Misérables.
To add variety we seasoned liberally with He Ain’t Heavy, Bohemian Rhapsody, Rhythm of Life, To Make You Feel My Love, Something Inside So Strong a cappella …
The proceeds from this concert will support concert the work of CAFOD, the official aid agency of the Catholic Church in England and Wales( part of Caritas International), which helps those in poverty and in crisis overseas. The picture below from the Teignmouth Post shows a ‘big cheque’ for £1200.00 being handed over by committee members to Marcia Doherty of CAFOD.
