Classical Journey Tuesday 11 October

Today's programme will start with a visit by CounterpointChoir's Musical Director, David Acres. He will bring some recordings of renaissance music for us to enjoy. He will also be telling us about his next concert with Counterpoint - a combination of modern choral music and Renaissance countertenor solos, sung by James Bowman, with Dorothy Linell playing lute.

Penny Adie, Artistic Director for this week's Two Moors Festival will be talking to us from a moving train - about the great music at the festival.

Whatever happens stay tuned. Two delightful sopranos, Penny Daw and Judyth Aarons, will be coming into the studio, with the president of the St David's Players Susan James, to talk about a very exciting production of Gilbert and Sullivan's 'Yeomen of the Guard. And it really is special. They had their dress rehearsal last night and it was spectacular!

We'll try to have as much music as we can as well.

David Treharne has promised a recording of jazz by Pianist Carolyn Hume and Austrian singer Katja Kruz - from their new album 'Light and Shade' which they will be performing at Hannahs at Seale Hayne in Newton Abbot on Wednesday 26th October (along with saxophonist Alexy Kruglov and guitarist Will Present and their album 'Karate').


Thank you to everyone who joined us.

Dave was a little preoccupied this morning and didn't bring the jazz tracks, but we will hear them next week, I hope.

Apologies to Sue North, vice-chair of East Devon Choral Society. She very kindly phoned in during the show to remind me that it was her choir singing the Milmer Requiem on Saturday - not the Exeter Chamber Choir.

Also I made a mistake saying that the retiring collection at Glenorchy is for the musicians. In fact the musicians perform for no fee - all contributions go towards the Church fund - for lecture and presentation equipment at the moment.

Also, the Beacon Piano Trio will be performing in Taunton at 3pm on Sunday 30th October, but not King's College Chapel. The Trio will be playing at 'The Old Music Room' in QUEEN'S College in Taunton. (See concert listings for full details. That concert will be very special. Since Tuesday's 'Journey' the Trio have played in Exmouth and they are on top form!

Till next time . . .
