Two festive concerts, one night

Have your say

Hastings Philharmonic Choir at St Mary-in-the-Castle and Inspiratus Brass: Molly Townson’s Ensemble Cantabile at St Michael’s Hospice, December 15. Review by Marrion Wells. 
HOLLYWOOD’S favourite scenario: Star attraction falls by the wayside, unknown steps from back row of the chorus and scores a hit. Not totally replicated at St Mary’s on Saturday but nearly - certainly the latter part, and then some!

For early in the programme the Philharmonic’s musical director Marcio da Silva turned on the podium and burst into song with O Holy Night in a resounding tenor which he has been keeping under wraps since he arrived in Hastings.

The surprised and delighted audience would willingly have heard more.
