The Choir and Orchestra blended perfectly as they presented their annual Summer Prom concert, featuring “Magical Movie Musicals” to a large audience who clapped, cheered, wave their flags, blew whistles and sounded hooters while having a thoroughly good time.
The annual Prom concert is one of the highlights of the year with the first half including Movie Musicals from such magical shows and films as The Greatest Showman, Mary Poppins, The Lion King, Wicked, A Star is Born and Moulin Rouge as well as numbers from Rodgers and Hammerstein and music from MGM. Soloist for this concert was soprano Pat Franklin who featured in the opening number (As The Parade Passes By) while the Orchestra had their own starring role in Unchained Melody.
The second half of the concert was in the style of a traditional promenade evening when seasoned promenaders joined in with the choir and orchestra in the time-honoured favourites of Land of Hope and Glory, Jerusalem, Sussex by the Sea with Fantasia on British Sea Songs sung by the choir as well as being played by the orchestra, with Pat Franklin taking the solo in Rule Britannia looking resplendent with red, white and blue feathers,
