On 17 March 2017, Breadsall Festival of Music welcomes not one, but two choirs to the stage!
A Choir’d Taste and Derby A Capella team up to present an evening of musical entertainment.
A Choir’d Taste
A Choir’d Taste is a mixed choir of approximately seventy members. Their repertoire is eclectic and ranges from Abba to Opera, Handel to Leonard Cohen. Under the musical direction of Paul Marshal, the choir performs at least three times a year in their hometown of Melbourne, as well as performing at many other events to which they are invited.
Derby A Capella
Derby A Capella are a small male voice ‘a cappella’ (i.e. unaccompanied) chorus who perform a variety of songs arranged in the Barbershop-style of close harmony including pop songs recent and not so recent, and songs from stage and screen, as well as the more traditional Barbershop songs from America. Under musical director Martine Thorne, the choir give around 20 performances a year in Derby and the surrounding areas.
And if that isn’t enough for a good evening of entertainment, Breadsall Festival is pleased to welcome young Toula Cottom of Belper. Toula is rapidly making a name for herself as a talented young singer with a strong musical intellectual understanding. Having been invited to sing aged 9, in the modern oratorio, ‘This Man’ in Derby Cathedral, Toula has gone from strength to strength, winning trophy’s at Arts Festivals and distinctions in her music exams. She is currently working towards her ABRSM gr V exam.
Refreshments will be available.
