SOWERBY Music opens its 25th season this weekend with a modern easy listening choral programme featuring some of the greatest songs of the past 50 or so years.
Taking place tomorrow, Saturday, September 17, at St Oswald’s Church in Sowerby the concert will feature songs such as The Indian Love Call, We’ll Gather Lilacs, Vilya, Cry me a River, Stranger in Paradise and A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square.
These, along with many other solos and duets will be performed by soprano Sally Johnson and baritone Richard Strivens who both have a wealth of experience on the opera stage and in the concert hall.
These singers along with accompanist Andy Stamatakis-Brown share a common ongoing Yorkshire connection in that all three are tutors for Yorkshire Young Musicians in Leeds.
The concert starts at 7.30pm.
