Voices in Concert
A Day of Song for Bulwell and Milton Keynes Academy
Bulwell and Milton Keynes joined forces – and voices – for the fourth Creative Education Trust Day of Song. After rehearsing together all morning with the Voices Foundation practitioner Will Prideaux, the Bullwell Choir, newly-formed, numerous and powerful under the leadership of Joseph Williams, opened the concert with numbers drawn from their forthcoming performance programme at Disneyland Paris. Solo Singing Ambassadors from both schools, coached over multiple one-to-one sessions by Will Prideaux, performed challenging repertoire from Italian opera to Romantic song and English folk tunes, with great poise and dignity. The Milton Keynes Chamber Choir closed the concert with a pair of celestial pieces, Path to the Moon by Eric Thiman and So Many Stars by Lin Marsh under the confident leadership of Stephen Darby.
