As a member of the Inter-Opera Chorus I just wanted you to know what an absolute joy it was to be part of the wonderful "Darkness to Light" concert on Saturday.
The Darlington Youth Choir and the Apollo Male Voice Choir were truly beautiful and singing with them, as well as the Reg Vardy Ensemble was a delight. This was of course down to the amazing direction of Alistair.
I certainly hope there will be more opportunities to take part in future concerts.
This superb event took place on 6th July, 2013.
"The best value Opera night out in the north east"
A gloriously indulgent night out in sumptuous surroundings.
Alistair Dawes conducted a superb-fund raising event with Penny Randall-Davies, Heather Jil Burn, Austin Gunn and Roderick Earle, accompanied by The Felling Band (north of England champions 2012) and local choirs.
