Los Ladrones: Extracts from ‘Tom Jones’ and from ‘The Arcadians’ at Chalton

The vocal quintet, with Nigel Smith, piano, present extracts from ‘Tom Jones’ (1907) by Edward German and from ‘The Arcadians’ (1909) by Lionel Monckton and Howard Talbot, with narrations by Marion Porter.

It has since performed at Stansted House, Holy Trinity Church Gosport, St.Michael’s Church Chalton, Oving Village Hall, Titchfield Parish Room, East Marden Church, Blendworth Church Centre and The Bognor Regis Music Club.

Works performed include The Contrabandista, The Zoo, Cox & Box, The Foresters and extracts from Kenilworth, The Beauty Stone, The Chieftain, On Shore and Sea and The Emerald Isle by Arthur Sullivan; Extracts from Gilbert & Sullivan; Curtain-Raisers: Cups and Saucers, Captain Billy & Mr Jericho and extracts from ‘Dorothy’ & ‘The Mountebanks’ by Alfred Cellier.

Future plans include The Spectre Knight by Alfred Cellier and The Miller & His Man by Arthur Sullivan.
