Our short concert Saturday 20th March will now be in aid of Jersey’s Ukraine Appeal and our choir will sing ‘Prayer of the Children’ partly in Ukrainian.
Our choir were recently asked by the Baliff to perform at the Vigil for Ukraine in Jersey's Royal Square.
We were freezing cold in our choir shirts in the cold evening air, but that was as nothing compared to the suffering of the children in Ukraine, and we sang for them.
We performed 'Prayer of the Children' by Kurt Bestor, and he had kind words to say about our rendition:
'I am very heartened and humbled that you and the Musical Originals sang my song “Prayer of the Children.” It’s sad that the song, written more than 25 years ago (for the war in Yugoslavia”) is still germane today. The words, when I sang it at a function last night, were haunting.'
Come along to the Town Church for a short early evening concert given by our award-winning Choir. Performances will feature works ranging from Mozart to Arvo Part, with classical solos and duets from our successful Grade 8 students.
Sean Frost, organist at St. Clement Danes Church, Fleet Street, will perform preludes by Buxtehude & Karg-Elert.
Refreshments provided. Free admission with a retiring collection.
The Musical Originals Singers are performing again for Liberation Day! This year we are excited to be singing a traditional Jersey folk song: ‘Belle Rose’ arranged for us by Charles Mauleverer.
We had fun recording it earlier this week in a windy Liberation Square. Tune in to the Government of Jersey Facebook page at 10:25 on Sunday to watch us!
We are all missing this so much! The Musical Originals Singers at the Town Hall, St Helier just before the world changed.
