“Our theme for this concert could not be more topical – “Earth Song – a celebration of our Earth”. In a time of natural disasters and ecological concerns, we swing the balance back to joy and awe at the wonders of nature and the world around us, with songs you will know and love, including Let The River Run, Moon River, May It Be, Caribbean Blue, Africa and – of course – What A Wonderful World. We voice the urgency of those calling for action with What About Us, Heaven Help Us All and Man in the Mirror. And, in what we think is something of an anthem for the cause, both choirs perform a Jill Jarman original composition, the heartfelt and moving Sonnet To A Seal.”
