This was Hastings Choristers debut concert series in the Glasshouse,
centuries of amazing and much loved music.
The impressive and melodic Cantorus and Cantabile
choirs and magnificent soloists were a feature of these concerts: talented
locals, Amanda Gordon, John Thompson & Laura Bereicua,
strutted their stuff alongside invited guest artists, soprano Jodie Goodwin and baritone Rob
Jodie's sister Julie Godwin had also been
billed to appear, having just completed a 2 year, 200-performance
Australasian tour in the role of Christine Daae in Phantom of the
Opera. To the audiences' great disappointment, Julie was
unfortunately ill and could not take part this time.
The Bach to Broadway repertoire was
wide-ranging from popular classics to Broadway hits and everything in
between with something for every musical taste.
Patrons thrilled to the uplifting Anthem
from Chess whilst
toe-tapping along to Fever and the Gospel Waitin for the Light
to Shine plus much more.
