Summer Concert In The Barn

1st of September 2011

Back in 1960 the sound of drums played by Peter Sellers was heard in the Barn of
Chipperfield Manor House. On 9 July this year a very different sort of music was heard in the Barn when members of the choir of St Paul’s Church presented a unique Summer Concert to a packed audience. Church organist and choirmaster, Keith Beniston, conducted the choir in a light hearted performance of highlights from Gilbert and
Sullivan’s, H.M.S. Pinafore. The choir, accompanied by Peter Wild, were joined by a cast of fine soloists including Mark Denza, Simon Woodhead, Christopher Wright, Katy
Powis, Simon Lillystone and Rosie Clifford. Following the interval the choir sang ‘Someone to watch over me’ by George Gershwin. Then followed songs by Cole Porter well performed by Rosie, Simon and Christopher. The evening concluded with the choir
performing their version of ‘A nightingale sang in Berkeley Square’. A thoroughly enjoyable evening wasexperienced by all who were fortunate to attend this special event made possible by the generosity of Rory Tapner and family who live the Manor House.
