The Glamaphones will be showcasing their versatility by performing two great works by Leonard Bernstein. This programme of two halves will feature songs from “the greatest musical of all-time”, West Side Story, as well as the choral classic, Chichester Psalms.
This concert is quite a departure for the Glamaphones. Rachel Hyde’s programmes for the choir have incorporated music of all genres, and the choir was ready for a new challenge with a new, albeit temporary, director. Upon taking on the choir’s directorship this term, Thomas Nikora has challenged Wellington’s rainbow choir with Chichester Psalms, a decidedly difficult piece in the choral canon. This will be balanced by the familiarity and eternal popularity of the West Side Story pieces.
