Chipperfield Choral Society’s Summer Concert

1st of September 2014

On a fine summer evening the choir, conducted by Delia Meehan, the Society’s Musical Director, sang a selection of ‘Songs and Cries of London Town’, traditional pieces in an arrangement by Bob Chilcot. Chipperfield’s own mezzo-soprano, Rosemary Clifford, gave a superb rendering of ‘Chalk Farm to Camberwell Green’ by Lional Monkton and ‘A Nightingale sang in Berkeley Square’. On two pianos Rosemary Venner and Sheila Cornall gave a stunning performance of Percy Grainger’s ‘Handel in the Strand’. ‘The Rhythm of Life’ by Cy Coleman was given an extra touch with percussion by Malcolm Ball. To mark the centenary of the outbreak of WW1 the choir gave lively renderings of wellknown songs including ‘It’s long way to Tipperary’. Rosemary Clifford sang ‘Business Girls’ by Madeleine Dring and Noel Coward’s ‘London Pride’. The evening concluded with ‘Orpheus in the Underground’ based on music by Jacques Offenbach. Great performances!
