A night at the movies – Summer concert review

‘A night at the movies’

What a joyful concert of varied music we gave our audience in July when we presented our ‘night at the movies’.

Once again, our Musical Director, Julie Aherne, put together a fun, inspired and popular selection of pieces from several different genres of films. How could we do anything other than deliver a performance worthy of these great movies. With our brilliant accompanist Camilla Jeppeson to support us we sang at our very best.

Our Chairman, Brenda Frost, wrote and performed a witty little piece of prose which references many of the pieces we performed. I think its probably a great way to summarise our evening in this post:

WELCOME to our Night at the Movies. See if you can pick out the songs we are going to sing.

We are here to make you Happy and make your Dreams come true. So, May It Be for you tonight! We have songs about the longing of a Mermaid, who wants to walk like humans, the wishes of Cinderella, the excitement of Aladdin as he soars above the earth on his magic carpet.

We will sing about the joy of Pocahontas as she sees the mountains and the creatures of the earth and paints with all the colours of the wind, and the sadness of Mulan, the girl who doesn’t know who she is. Nobody does it better than Julie, who would love us to practice

from 9 to 5 and Camilla whose beautiful playing brings tears to our eyes as we sing Lacrimosa and Agnus Dei. They both encourage us to Conquer Paradise, sing Hallelujah, and go into Bohemian Rhapsody. We hope to transport you to New York, Middle Earth, and even to the jungle to glimpse The Eye Of The Tiger.

The Sky May Fall In, but Our Hearts Will Go On.

So, this is me, This Is Us. Woking Ladies Choir.

THANK you, Brenda.

If you missed it – don’t worry you can join us for our Christmas concert on 14th December at 4:30pm. Put the date in your diary – tickets on sale nearer the time.
