Hamilton Civic Choir presents a celebration of the 400th anniversary of the publication of Shakespeare's sonnets. Local actors Alec Forbes and Liz Buick will set the scene with extracts from favourite plays and sonnets, and the choir will be joined by premiere jazz vocalist Malcolm McNeill, pianist Barry Brinson, bass player Paul Dyne and guitarist Julian Sherlock to sing jazzy arrangements of songs, sonnets and madrigals. The program includes the premiere performance of a set of songs by Elizabethan poet Thomas Arne, arranged especially for the Civic Choir by Barry Brinson. Malcolm will also perform songs from modern shows derived from Shakespearian plays. Our 2007 concerts with Malcolm and Barry sold out, so book early to avoid disappointment!
