This is my first attempt at a Blog on the new-look website. How exciting! So what does one talk about? I guess I could tell you about the concert I did with the Pontypridd Choral Society on Saturday night.

Worked with an excellent pianist, Nicki Rose, of Cardiff. My programme was a real mixed bag. In the first half some opera and oratorio (Handel's Ombra mai fu and Pro Pecatis from Rossini's Stabat Mater; this latter piece was recorded earlier in the year in Devon and is available as a download off this website).

Next was a chunk from Elijah. A pretty good sing to to end the first half. The second half was lighter and my contribution included items from Porgy and Bess and South Pacific. I ended with the Toreador song from Carmen.

The audience seemed to enjoy the concert, which is what it is all about. Shame there weren't a few more people there, but then again there was a popular dancing programme on the TV...but that is a rant for another blog!
