Preview: Hampshire Police MVC charity concert in Petersfield

The HPMVC are delighted to be welcoming Thomas Luke, the brilliant pianist from the IOW, who will be playing two 15 minute slots on the Yamaha grand in the acoustic-friendly auditorium, on 8 July.

The Choir will be singing a variety of sacred, popular, traditional and operatic music including An American Trilogy and Alexander’s Ragtime Band. Fly me To The Moon, She Was Beautiful (Cavatina) and What a Wonderful World provide well-known, melodious pieces.

A Police Choir has to sing The Gendarmes by Offenbach, whilst the baritones imitate bugles in High on a Hill. The arrangement of When The Saints Go Marching In is an exciting one, which builds to a great climax and takes us into the interval.

On a Clear Day is from the film of the same name and, after Thomas Luke’s second spot, we will perform three extracts from opera: Nessun Dorma, Speed Your Journey and The Anvil Chorus.

If the audience would like an encore, the conductor, Geoff. Porter has been known to invite everyone to clap along to a well-known march.
