This is our latest album that highlights the versatility of the band with a programme of music to rival many professional outfits. Featuring several of our famous show medleys including Overtures from Mary Poppins, Jekyll & Hyde and Ivan’s ever popular arrangement of music from Les Miserables. We pay tribute to Cilla Black and feature a wide repertoire of music from film, stage and the big bands. For the first time on CD we are joined by our very own soprano Elizabeth Phillips, who regular audience members will know from our Festival of Remembrance shows. Enchanting arrangements of Everytime We Say Goodbye and Someone Like You are beautifully sung by Elizabeth. She also delivers a captivating performance of Nella Fantasia, the lyricised version of Ennio Morricone’s Gabriel’s Oboe. An album not to be missed from your collection.
