Pushing the boundaries of choral performance, this evening brings together two Brighton-based vocal groups for a double bill featuring stunning close harmonies and exciting, off the beaten track repertoire.
The first half features the Rebelles, nine women whose show She Will Survive explores life, love and work from a drab staff canteen. It’s a funny, heart-warming tea break with classical, jazz and pop music from Schubert to ABBA.
In the second half, Resound Male Voices present Members Only!, a light-hearted look into what happens when a group of men come together to form a singing group. From disasters and dramas to friendships and fun, Resound tell their story through an eclectic mix of songs including Gjeilo’s Ubi Caritas and the Beach Boys' God Only Knows.
Both groups are led by musical director Stefan Holmström and are accompanied by Tim Nail (piano), Basil Richmond (piano) and Paul Whiteside (double bass).
There will be a retiring collection to be made in aid of CALM in memory of Tom Salway.
