Tarantara!- "...the nostalgia of Gilbert and Sullivan ...."
Reviews

A large audience enjoyed the nostalgia of Gilbert and Sullivan Opera in the Louth Choral Society Summer Concert, ‘Tarantara!’ held on Sunday 7th July at St James’s Church, Louth.

In contrast to their excellent spring concert ‘Song of Songs’, with its many soloists, this concert featured mainly the choir and showed off the depth of talent in it.  The programme covered extracts from six operas with explanation between each piece provided by Martin Pickering, Musical Director, who also provided accomplished solos showing off his beautiful voice and stagecraft.

Patrick Hawes @patrickhawes  
and thanks to you @LouthChoral for your fabulous singing. I stick by my words - you are one of the country's best choral societies. Bravo!

Louth Choral Society excelled in staging the innovative ‘Song of Songs’ concert on Sunday 24th March in St James’s Church, Louth covering themes from Holy Week. It featured six soloists, strings, harp and organ continuo accompaniment and two conductors. The large audience was treated to a treasure of choral composition from 14c through to the present day, ending with the group of six choral pieces for strings and voices, ‘Song of Songs’, (2009), composed and conducted by Patrick Hawes, former Classic FM 2006/7 Composer in Residence.
