Fab review from our Buxton Festival Fringe performance on 11 July 2012!

This is Andrew Hodkinson’s review of our joint concert with Tideswell Male Voice Choir, quoted verbatim from the review section of the Fringe website:

“You know the event you are reviewing is likely to be good when you have to queue for a few minutes to get in! Last night was such an event, and was well supported by a capacity audience. When a performance appears easy and relaxed then it usually follows that the performers have worked really hard, and the audience is in for a treat – and we were treated to a slick and professional evening of music.

I would like to give more detail of the music performed but sadly with no printed programme and little verbal information I would likely as not get it wrong. Dennis Kay & Christopher Ellis, the MD and Accompanist, did a wonderful job encouraging and supporting the singers (I had to ask how their names were spelled – no programme!). What a fine ensemble and sound from this men’s choir; and their intonation was pretty near faultless even in “Wonderful World”, and “Yesterday” where falling phrases can so often arrive flat – not with TMVC. They have a range of sounds and dynamics that makes it a pleasure to hear.

Their guest group was a ladies choir from Altrincham called “Di Voce” (I hope that is correct), and their singing was a revelation – clear, wide range, superb intonation, and dynamic range, and what power from only 27 singers! Their items were wide ranging and a joy to listen to, and the combined items with TMVC were something really special.

The high points for me were “Bohemian Rhapsody”, and the solo spot “Floral Dance” with soloist???. For “Di Voce” it was the the Rutter “For the Beauty of the Earth”, and Gershwin’s “I Got Rhythm”. As Dennis said at the end of the concert, a choir is nothing without a first class accompanist and we had two stars last night.”
