The huge event held in St Leonard’s Church last Sunday attracted a sell out audience and raised over £17,000 for the charity Rupert’s Revenge. A local ‘Ruperts Choir’ made up of keen amateur singers joined with West End stars Erica Ann Deakin, Jeremy Secomb, Rob Houchen, Karen Evans, Chris and Lucy Key and Laura Tebbutt conducted by Cameron Mackintosh’s amazing musical maestro Alfonso Casado Trigo in and inspirational event which exceeded all expectations.
“It was a thrilling occasion- one can only marvel at the talent and quality of the performers. Long will it remain in the memory of the audience and participants, I’m sure.” Allan Griffiths – choral singer
“What a performance. I felt it was a privilege to be a part of it and I loved every moment. My wrist tag proclaiming I’m a ‘fabulous singer’ will have to fall off before I will remove it! It was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve had and I thank you so much.
See, anything CAN happen!” Kathryn Goodall (2nd Soprano!)
“What a triumph. It was a privilege to be part of this real community event. I saw Coldplay perform at Wembley a few years ago and I was struck by how Chris Martin managed to make everyone in that 80,000 seater stadium think he was singing just for them. The singers last night did exactly that. It is a huge skill and testimony to their complete professionalism and humanity. They were wonderful.” Sophie Whitworth
