Gippeswyk    Singers

REVIEWS

Our 8TH Jan 2017 Concert with Martlesham Brass

The Gippeswyk Singers were on fine vocal form,presenting an eclectic programme of carols,classics and a magnificent work by Bob Chilcott, Little Jazz Mass,for choir and a highly accomplished rhythm section. Conductor Geoff Lavery guided the singers impeccably throughout giving us excellent diction, beautiful dynamic control and really lovely musical phrasing which made every piece have a pulse and a purpose. It was hard not to sing along. Luckily we did not have to wait long for that,as the evening was rounded off with an Oliver medley. Lovely, lovely, lovely. Please Sir, can I have some more?

Many congratulations to you, Geoff, for an exhilarating performance... marvellous to see a full auditorium.

Wow, what a performance! The Choirs were so strong....You should feel extremely proud.

                                                                                        Extracts from emails from an appreciative audience

The performance was a tour de force which held the audience spellbound throughout, leading at the end to a rousing and prolonged thank you from the audience accompanied by cheers, whistles and calls for more.......the musicians and singers clearly put their heart and soul in to this performance....this was locally based amateur choral singing at its very best.
