Following the success of their most recent concert Jazz, Lovers and Others, Brighton and Hove’s newest male voice group Resound are now in the final weeks of preparation for their Valentine’s show ‘L-O-V-E’ which is to be performed at St Andrew’s Church in Waterloo Street, Hove, on Saturday, February 16 at 19:30pm. The concert is part of the B.Right.On LGBT Festival being staged to celebrate LGBT History month.
An evening of music and comedy is promised celebrating that old theme of LOVE, featuring a mix of retro classics and lesser known songs with newly written comedy monologues for a perfect night out in the Valentine’s week.
Joining Resound for this evening of pop, jazz and cabaret songs will be the soprano Yvonne Patrick (from Glyndebourne Opera and also a regular guest at BBC’s Friday Night Is Music Night) and actress Adele Bates who is performing a series of specially commissioned comedy monologues about the ups and downs of dating.
The evening will be centred around Nat King Cole’s L-O-V-E with pop classics like Bacharach’s Close To You, The Beatles For No One and Pat Ballard’s Mr Sandman.
Soprano Yvonne Patrick will perform Benjamin Britten’s Tell Me The Truth About Love and a wonderful jazz setting of Shakespeare’s Shall I Compare Thee To A Summers Day by Swedish composer Nils Lindberg.
Jazz musicians Paul and Anne Whiteside will add another dimension by performing songs arranged for flute and double bass including Divine Comedy’s Songs Of Love.
Resound’s Musical Director, the Swedish opera singer Stefan Holmström, said:
“This year we have worked hard to find our personality as a vocal group, and have really come to love these timeless “retro classics”. We’re performing without amplification in the intimate setting of St Andrews Church. I think it will be a very special evening because of the wonderful emotional impact these songs have”
Tickets are available from the Brighton Dome Box Office and the Iron Duke Hotel in Hove at £10.00 (£8.50 concessions).
