Gala Concert with Ampthill Concert Orchestra


PBGS is really looking forward to performing in this fabulous Gala Concert with Ampthill Concert Orchestra and Redborne School Choir on 25th November. There are some stellar soloists - Bonaventura and Rebecca Bottone, and Jennifer Dakin - and a lovely programme of Verdi, Puccini, Orff, a bit of our usual G&S and much much more.

We had our first rehearsal last night and rocked the rafters with 'O Fortuna' and the 'Anvil Chorus' (who needs real anvils?).

Tickets available through Eventbrite.
