Neston Parish Church was almost full for the visit of Rhos Male Voice Choir, presented by the Rotary Club of Neston.
The range of their programme included light operatic favourites such as The Prayer from Wagner’s Lohengrin and Speed Your Journey from Verdi’s Nabucco, Welsh language pieces such as Si Hei Lwli Mabi, a medley from West Side Story and a wonderfully powerful rendition of the South African National Anthem, N’kosi Sikeleli Africa.
The Concert was enhanced with two solo sets from the Royal Northern College of Music’s student of the year 2015-16, violinist Jodie Smith. We shall hear more of her in the future.
Proceeds from the event, including the raffle, were split between the Wirral Talking Newspaper and the Wirral Society for the Blind.
