This week, as I mentioned on the last show, we are at The Shaldon Festival, we follow the one day event when the Festival Choir gather, this year under the baton of Sir Neville Mariner. The Festival Choir or Chorus is put together for just one day from some 180 amateur singers around the area, though there were singers from as far afeild as Surrey, this year they studied Rossini's Petit Messe Solonelle. Work begins at 10am and goes on all day, then in the evening at 7:30pm a performance is put on for the paying public, I recorded all but the performance. Some great singing and hard work to follow, as usual I will fill in the gaps on the show.
Hope you can listen in
