We attended the Buckingham Festival in November. Here is what the adjudicator had to say about us.
Adjudicator: Keith Smith
Piece 1 Sure on this Shining Night
Piece 2 The Rhythm of Life
Generally a good balance with firm entries. Diction good but exaggerate the more important words. Well controlled expression throughout and excellent phrasing. Mind not to allow too much vibrato to take the edge off some of the tuning on higher notes. Well managed piece.
Clip the diction even more.
Well managed words in the long rows of semi-quavers, but the pitch went down a little.
Alto part at ‘doo bi’ needed more to balance in 2nd repeat, however a very well worked ending.
Hard, but worth all your efforts. Very good to hear.
At our summer concert we conducted an audience survey, we received comments from over half of the audience. The audience was asked to give their favourite, least favourite and highlight of the evening. Here are just a few of the comments given:
"Just a fantastic evening"
"Enjoyed it all, no least favourites, a great choir"
"Highlight - the enthusiasm and quality of the singing"
"An excellent choice of music, I thoroughly enjoyed it all"
"They were all excellent"
"All good and the ‘highlight’ was the variety"
