St Boniface Church, St Budeaux
On Saturday 16th April Loveny Male Voice Choir once again crossed the Tamar to give a concert at St Boniface Church St Budeaux, Loveny has sung at this venue for several years and always gets a great reception and a full house. This year Loveny had the pleasure of having as their guest soloist Rebekah Scamp, Rebekah is a gifted young lady with a wonderful voice she has already made her mark in Cornwall by winning best vocal soloist at the Cornwall Music Festival. Rebekah sings with Duchy Opera and the National Youth Choir of Great Britain. Rebekah sang four songs all of which were received with hearty applause from the audience
One of Loveny’s basses Roger James gave a very funny recital by the Cornish poet David Prowse, Molly’s blooming holiday, with his great delivery and notable Cornish accent went down very well.
Ably conducted by Stuart Reeves and Colin Arthur and accompanied on the keyboard by Heather Taylor Loveny sang a variety of songs which included two new pieces added to their repertoire. The Rose written by Amanda Mc Broom and made famous by Bette Midler and Westlife, this arrangement was by Alwyn Humphreys a beautiful piece which the choir thoroughly enjoyed singing. The other new piece was the classic Some Enchanted Evening by the great Rodgers and Hammerstein.
All in all, a very enjoyable evening was had by One and All.
Loveny would like to thank the landlord and landlady of the Ferry House Inn on the banks of the Tamar for their generous hospitality.
Loveny’s next concert is in St Petrocs Church Bodmin at 7pm on Saturday 30th April. The concert is in aid Lanhydrock Church funds. The soloists are Rosemary Turner and Maggie Holden.
