Carnegie Hall calling

They aren’t leaving today, but if you start spreading the word, Bath Spa University Choir will soon be a part of it...New York, New York.

The choir has been invited to perform at New York’s prestigious Carnegie Hall venue after they were heard performing at Bath Abbey earlier this year.

It is a terrific opportunity and if they get there, they will be performing Karl Jenkins’ Armed Man on the hallowed stage – while its composer watches on.

But as beautiful and endearing as Bath is, Milton Keynes it isn’t, so why are we writing about the spa town?

Because one of the choir’s voices belongs to Milton Keynes girl, Emma Davies.

In order to make the cross Atlantic trip, the choir need to swell the coffers, and to that end they’ll be showing out at St Mary & St Giles Church in Stony Stratford this weekend.

The Midsummer Music Concert will see music students, friends and family of Bath Spa Uni deliver a wonderful collection of music – spanning classical and contemporary styles and four centuries.

Give your ears a treat and let them dance from Schumann to Sinatra.

Tickets are £5 on the door and the show begins at 7.30pm.
