The concert was delightfully enhanced by the support of local 16 year old Lucy Bishop. Still at school, studying for A levels, Lucy has been accepted into the Junior Royal School of Music. Her first half performance on a full sized Italian concert harp, expertly played at a level well above her age and experience included Clement: Sonatina – Allegro, Andante and Vivace and the Skye Boat Song. No less wonderfully played, the second half included Pachelbel’s – Canon in D, Yiruma – River flows in you, featured on the album ‘First Love’ and an Ed Sheeran and Snow Patrol member Johnny McDaid composition – Photograph. The Choir and audience responded to Lucy’s performance with several rounds of rapturous applause throughout and at the end of the concert. http://www.caldicotmalevoicechoir.co.uk/?p=14135&fbclid=IwAR2o8cIcVTsfzCX99fU22jrE0R65KiHRARoT_A4EklfjZM1zimVWh-j8kLA
