Choir sings Gilbert and Sullivan at two venues

Lovers of a unique brand of music written in the Victorian days were in their element last week when the Mid Northumberland Chorus presented an evening of the sheer magic of Gilbert and Sullivan at two venues.

Chantry Middle School in Morpeth and the Ashington Parish Church of the Holy Sepulchre hosted the evening, which told the story of the duo.

The Morpeth-based MNC were privileged to have soprano Jane Corbitt and tenor Richard Pinkstone as lead singers whilst Tony Batty, David Richardson, Joan Howard, Jackie Jordan, Anne-Marie Cairns, Pauline Garton and Steve Locks all contributed in solo roles.

The chorus excelled with some lovely harmonies whilst accompanists Emma Straughan and Ken Irvine also gave five star performances.
