The walls of the Saloon at Kedleston Hall will soon be ringing with the dulcet tones of Melbourne Male Voice Choir and Derby High School when a rousing concert will be staged on Saturday 21 March.
The two hour magical musical event starting at 7.00pm will feature favourite choral pieces ‘Bring Him Home’ from Les Miserables, ‘You Raise Me Up’ and ‘Calon Lan’ accompanied by instrumental performances to make this a really special evening.
The Derby High School Chapel Choir will be performing music by Mozart, Pergolesi, Faure, Vaughan Williams and Bruckner. The choir will be conducted by Ed Temple, Director of Music at Derby High School and accompanied by Paul Marshall.
In addition there will be performances by the school’s senior clarinet ensemble, saxophone group and solo items for flute, saxophone, cello, violin and piano, which will include music by Bach, Mozart and Dvorak.
Andrea Leeming, Musical Director of Melbourne Male Voice Choir, said:
"This concert has a lively line-up of goose-bump inducing songs. The acoustics of the beautiful domed Saloon will really enhance the vocals and bring the Hall to life."
