The Proms at St James

Hutt: Saturday November 19th at 7:30 pm

St James Church, Woburn Road, Lower Hutt

It's the usual Proms concert of a relatively restrained first half wot yer gentry expects in a concert. Then they can collapse the top hats, pop the tiaras in a reticule (not that I've ever seen one but they litter historical novels from Regency to early 20th C, so they probably have to be taken to concerts or they sulk which is the past tense of silk and no-one wants to go there..  um, where was I... oh yes...) Then the motley classes proceed to take greater and greater part in the concert, emboldened by the somewhat festival clothing of the orchestra, and probably egged on by the conductor and the soloist. It typically descends into a rabble cheerfully singing.

Pasquale Orchard
And speaking of the soloist, that will be Pasquale Orchard, last seen as Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady last April. She will be singing Quel guardo il cavaliere from Don Pasquale by Donizetti.
