Singers have been sorely missed

11:05am Thursday 30th May 2013 in NewsBy SNJ Reporter

Bristol Gasworks Singers Nailsworth Festival concert reviewed by Jane Leigh.

IT’S a couple of years since the Gasworks Singers were in town, and the audience at this concert showed these 35 singers they have been missed – and they are welcome back any time.

The acoustics of St George’s proved perfect for the singers’ eclectic programme ranging from jazz and madrigals, to world music from Nigeria and Bulgaria, to new and old pop songs.

And the evening sun flooding in through the west window put a natural spotlight on the singers’ sea of red and orange, adding a visual warmth to the vocal joy pouring out from these talented visitors.

This was a warm and enthusiastic event, with the first half featuring all 35 of the group, and the second half including set pieces from the women, followed by the male voices, showcasing the virtuosity of the choir.

My personal highlights were the evocative You Don’t Know What Love Is (a hauntingly-beautiful song of the sea), an uproarious version of Jessie J’s It’s Not About the Money, and the encore of Minnie the Moocher.

But there wasn’t a duff note to be heard all night, and the singers’ obvious pleasure in their efforts was contagious, sending everyone home with a song in their heart.

 

Thank you, Gasworks Singers, and come back soon.
