After morning service on Sunday, a coach load of church members and friends enjoyed yet another excellent coach excursion, organised amazingly well, as ever, by Pauline Noble. The destination was the Royal Albert Hall and a tribute to the great musicals by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
Introduced by Radio 3 presenter Petroc Trelawny, we were treated to an excellent afternoon's entertainment by top musical talent. Conductor David Firman has a string of West End musicals, albums and movies to his credit. The four vocalists, Anna-Jane Casey, Kerry Ellis, Alex Gaumond and Oliver Tompsett have an impressive list of theatre, film and television credits to their names. They were supported by this year's highly talented ArtsEd Ensemble, comprising students from the three-year BA (Hons) Musical Theatre course at Arts Educational Schools London.
The general verdict was, "What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon" and with door-to-door coach travel, excellent Royal Albert Hall seats and a driver's tip all included at £49.50, it was also amazingly good value. Once again, 'Thank you Pauline!'
