The successful partnership between the RMA Concert Band and the MGC Choir was once again revived at Christmas on Sunday 11th December. Performing to a large audience at The Guildhall, Portsmouth, both band and choir performed some magnificent showstoppers.
Largely working in partnership throughout, highlights included Carter’s Disneyland Spectacular arrangement, Gary Barlow’s Neverland and the festive Slade favourite, Merry Christmas Everybody. Both choir and band also had the opportunity to provide some individual features.
Rebecca North, daughter of the choir’s MD, sang with real purity in O Holy Night and the band excelled in the highly-impressive and virtuosic overture, Plymouth Hoe and later the compilation of songs from the ever-popular musical, Oliver.
Band and choir return again in partnership at the same venue on Sunday 8th October 2017.
