Pageant News 27 November 2007

On Sunday 25 November we were treated to a most entertaining and enjoyable evening of 'fun, live music and song' by the acclaimed Sussex choir Vivace!, Director of Music John Sandford, in Southwater Parish Church.

The evening was organised on behalf of Pageant by the Southwater Parochial Church Council, most of the hard work being done by Stephen Chapman, to whom we offer our very grateful thanks. Our thanks go also to Dominic Newstead, the Vicar of Southwater, and the team of ladies who helped with the refreshments in the interval - and of course, to the choir themselves, who were MAGNIFICENT.

The audience enjoyed a most varied programme, with a mix of music ranging from the sixteenth century to rock 'n roll, some items being performed by soloists or smaller ensembles on a variety of musical instruments. The choir even managed to include an African number in each half of the programme - particularly appropriate for Pageant, we thought. The concert raised 350 for Pageant after paying all expenses.

Vivace! are a small choir of mixed voices based in Ditchling, East Sussex, who perform with the aim of supporting good causes. They are well worth going to listen to and you can find a list of their 2007 & 2008 concerts on
their website by clicking the 'Concerts' link.
